heterogeneous publication Properties, Subscription Options Tab
The following options are available on the Subscription Options tab of the publication Properties dialog box.
Allow only enabled Subscribers to create pull subscriptions
View whether those Subscribers who have been specifically enabled are allowed to create pull subscriptions to the publication.
Allow both anonymous and enabled Subscribers to pull subscriptions
View whether those Subscribers who have been specifically enabled and any anonymous Subscribers are allowed to create pull subscriptions to the publication.
Use a Distribution Agent that is independent of other publications from this database
View whether the publication uses a separate Distribution agent. Having all the publications at the Publisher use the same Distribution Agent reduces the resource demands and increases performance at the Distributor. However, if your application requires immediate synchronization or allows anonymous subscriptions, you must have a separate Distribution Agent for this publication.
Snapshot files are always available to immediately initialize new subscriptions
View whether a new subscription can be immediately initialized from the snapshot stored at the Distributor.
Allow the Internet to be used to create and synchronize subscriptions
View whether Subscribers can create and synchronize their subscriptions over the Internet.
