Connection Types by Database

Native Native connection via client. The provider does not require installation of any additional software on the client. Some databases do not require installation of a client because it is embedded in Toad Data Modeler (Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL, Greenplum, EDB Postgres, Greenplum, SQLite and PostgreSQL).

ODBC Connection via ODBC Database Connection via ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) Driver. ODBC Driver is not part of Toad Data Modeler. In most cases, it is distributed directly with database.

ADO Connection via ADO Database Connection via ADO (ActiveX Data Objects) with OLE DB Drivers. OLE DB Drivers are not part of Toad Data Modeler. In most cases, they are distributed directly with database.

TCP/IP Connection via TCP/IP This connection type allows you to connect to your database without client. To make the connection successfully, you need to know the TCP/IP server name and port.
