In general, for MS-SQL 6.5 and *before* you can access the server
using either Sybase::DBlib or Sybase::CTlib. You just need to define
an entry in the interfaces file for the MSSQL server.
Client Library is a little more finicky, so you *may* get some
protocol level errors when talking to an MS-SQL server with
With MSSQL 7.0 it appears that MS has changed the protocol somewhat,
making the use of the Sybase libraries more problematic, although I
don't have a lot of details on that.
