The three tiers are:
Database servers: This tier consists of SQL database servers, typically running on high-performance workstations. It contains all the database data, metadata, and referential integrity rules required by the application. This tier typically is inside the corporate firewall and can provide a layer of security in addition to that provided by the WWW server. Netscape Enterprise Server supports the use of ODBC, DB2, Informix, Oracle, and Sybase database servers. Netscape FastTrack Server supports only ODBC.

Therefore, it is recommended that you do not use the Application Manager outside your firewall unless you use SSL. For instructions on how to turn on SSL for your server, see the administrator's guide for your web server.
