No, it only requires the synchornizer. An explanation of how to set
up Indirect Replication without ReplMan can be found in this post of
mine (all on one line):
That's unfortunate that there are no circumstances in which they
allow that. They certainly allowed the installation of MS Access,
which meant major modifications to the registry and the installation
of a great deal of software. It's *** y stupid on their part to
prohibit such actions in all cases, instead of evaluating on a
case-by-case basis if it's OK or not.
What's the connection between the remote replicas and the replica
they'll be synching with? If it's a LAN connection, direct is fine.
If it's not, you're completely out of luck if you can't use
Indirect, as it's just not possible to safely synch across anything
but a wired connection of at least 10mbps in bandwidth.
Why is replication needed, then? Replication makes sense only when
the data editing has to take place in two locations. If it's
happening in only one, you don't need replication at all -- all you
need is an updated copy of the data, copied over top of your old
Replica farms are only useful when you're using Indirect
If you can use Direct, then you're on a LAN. If you're on a LAN,
then I have no idea why you need replication at all. If you're not
on a LAN, you can't use Direct. And if you can't install the
software for Indirect replication, then you can't use that.
And it's not clear to me from the description of your app that
there's any real need for replication in the first place.
