in reply to [unixODBC][FreeTDS][SQL Server]Unable to connect to data source (SQL-08001)

For what it's worth, I've had a lot more luck using DBD::Sybase to connect to MSSQL servers than ODBC.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    ...but as far as i remember, don't you need also FreeTDS when connecting to MSSQL with DBD::Sybase?

      Indeed you do.

      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
