SQL Server Replication Across Domains and the Internet
Create a PULL Subscription
When using the Pull subscription wizard, the ‘Choose Publication’ form allows browsing of the publisher’s publications. The publisher can be added to EM at this stage or already be configured. If everything has been correctly set up using the previous steps, the publications list should be visible. The synchronization agent login should be set to use a SQL login (pass-through is possible but let’s leave that for now) already added to the PAL. If the subscriber is registered at the publisher, this can be a named subscription, otherwise it’ll be anonymous. The only other thing to set up is to select the option to ‘Download using FTP’ on the Snapshot Delivery form.
