Ok, I think I understand the config files. It's unfortunate that this has become less portable because of that. Would you happen to have an example dsn that uses the config file? Or does freetds automatically look at the file if the dsn is missing information?

    I believe you need to setup the config files regardless of what you pass into the DSN

    You need an entry in the freetds.conf for each server and an entry in the .odbc.conf for each database

      Here is a copy of my config files.
      odbc.ini [ODBC Data Sources] VOIP [VOIP] Driver = FreeTDS Description = Connection to the new voip DB Trace = No Server = 127.0.0.1 Port = 4433 Database = databasename [Default] Driver = FreeTDS freetds.conf [VOIP] host = 127.0.0.1 instance = CRSSQL port = 4433 client charset = UTF-8 tds version = 8.0 odbcinst.ini [FreeTDS] Description = FreeTDS Driver Driver = /usr/local/lib/libtdsodbc.so Setup = /usr/lib/odbc/libtdsS.so

      Does anything look off?
        Mine (which is working) has ServerName not Server in the odbc.ini, Also it it .odbc.ini on mine
