I need to set up a low cost development environment that closely matches my
customer environment without spending much money. I've gotten some
contradictory info want to confirm the list of software that I need to have
on-hand.

My customer runs SQL Server v11 on Solaris. I have a mix of NT and W95 PCs, and
one Sun running SunOS. I use dblib 4.9.x and sybperl on UNIX. ASE 11.5 for NT
has the right price, but what else do I need to buy in order to connect to this
from UNIX and 95? All my UNIX SQL code, bcp's, other clients, etc. need to work
without modification.

The Sybase order line said that I could not connect to ASE 11.5 for NT from
UNIX, and that I needed to buy the UNIX version, which costs too much. Is this
true? Smart guys on the net says that this setup should work, but I want to
confirm how others are doing this.

Much appreciated,
Tim

I think the order line people meant that you don't get all the Solaris
client
software you need on the NT ASE CD (which is correct as far as I know).
However,
you can certainly connect Solaris clients to NT servers - no problem.

You need:

ASE 11.5 for Windows NT (your server software)
OpenClient runtime for Win32 (your PC client software)
OpenClient runtime for Solaris (your Unix client software)

Then all will run happily together!
