If have a SQL Server database running in a NT 4.0 server,
is there a way to access it from a Solaris 2.4 Sun server?

I've been trying to do the same thing , I think.Quote:>Hi

So far I have had 2 suggestions:
1, Install NFS support on the NT machine, It seems that Chameleon NFS is
the flavour of the month. As I understand it Solaris understands NFS
2, Install Samba (SMB) support on the Unix machine, that will make unix
understand NDIS TCP/IP speak.
You need a software to conect the PC- and UNIX-world. One free way is to
See "http://lake.canberra.edu.au/pub/samba/samba.html" and
"comp.protocols.smb" for more information.
I'm sure that the answer lies here but as it is only source code I'm not
sure how to compile it, but I'll keep trying.

My distribution of Solaris 2.5 has the "ODBC Driver Manager 2.11" on the
same CD as Wabi and CDE. With the appropriate drivers, you should be able
to communicate with your SQL server running on your NT.

I have a linux box, which functions as an internet server (mail, news,
etc), and an NT 4.0 server running SQL 6.5 on the same subnet. I would
like some custom apps, in C and Perl to be able to do SQL queries on the
MS SQL server. I am really new to databases, and not the best
programmer in the world, so the simpler the solution, the better.
I imagine there are some libraries somewhere which would facilitate
this, but I didn't see anyhting for Linux on MS' site. All I really
need is pretty generic SQL stuff, so some universal library, if it
exists, would be great.
