I need to query an SQL Anywhere database through a RAS dial up connection.
The ODBC drivers are on the machine where the database resides and are
installed and the DSN is in the NT registry.
No problem accessing the database if i am on the NT machine.

I then dial into the NT machine with my w98 machine through RAS and dial up
networking and i can map a network drive to the NT machine and i have no
problems seeing the folders and files on the NT machine.

I then want to query the database on the NT machine but i have no DSN set
up on the w98 machine and cannot link to the database.

Do i need to install the ODBC drivers on the w98 machine?

If so - where do i get the drivers for sql anywhere 5.0 and where do i get
the programs that installs the driver and creates the DSN in the registry?

Am i living in the stone age here or is this a perfectly reasonable
endevour?

You need to install the SQL Anywhere client on the W98 machine that you
are using as a client. The client install will include the ODBC driver. You
will then need to used the ODBC Administrator (ODBCAD32.exe) to create the
DSN.

Since dial up connections tend to be slow and (as a result) a bit
quirky, you may have some follow up questions. The newsgroup
sybase.public.sqlanywhere.general would be a good place to post those
questions. That group is specifically focused on SQL Anywhere and ASA.
