Before I can gain VPN access to run Informatica from home, I need to identify all the protocols Informatica uses for an ETL job to run. I found that it uses a native protocol for the repository, source, and target databases (so sqlnet for Oracle). I also know that I'll need to identify all protocols that could potentially be used to extract data from non-RDBMS sources (such as ftp).
But, what protocol would be used to connect to the server to run the job? Are there any other protocols I'd need to be aware of that it might use as part of the whole process of opening up Designer, creating a job, and running it?
