I have successfully connected to several DB's as a client via ODBC.
However, when I try to connect to DB's outside my router I get "Unable to
Connect to DB server. Unable to start DBENG 80" I am able to ping these
boxes successfully. Can this be done? If I recall the Server Name defined
in my ODBC connection will not will not pass through a router??? How do I
define an ODBC connection using an IP address?

Thanks, for any help you may provide!!

Mike

On the network page of the ODBC configuration, put 'host=<whatever>' in
the box next to the tcp/ip checkbox. If the server is on a non-default
port, also put a semicolon and 'serverport=xxxx'.

(both without the quotes)
