Thread: Connecting to Microsoft-SQL Server via Linux

  1. #1
    Without having to install software on the SQL_server (a req't) we need to connect to it from Linux.

    Perl on Linux has a DBI driver but it requires server side software.

    Is there another way to do it, via MySQL (ODBC) client or something?

    Have a look at generic connectivity:

    It's available in 8i and 9i, but I'm not sure if it comes with the Linux/UNIX versions or if it's limited to the Windows platform. It's worth having a look.
