    Looking at DBI::ProxyServer, it seems that this approach requires installation of ActiveState Perl and the DBI::ProxyServer piece on the Windows box, correct? While this is not an insurmountable problem, it is not as optimal as a solution which can be implemented entirely on servers under my control. Still, it would save me from having to purchase an ODBC driver -- thanks for the suggestion! :)
