SQL Anywhere by default uses an ODBC driver for it's interface, rather
than the Sybase DBlibrary or CTlibrary. It is possible to access SQL
Anywhere with the DBlib or CTlib APIs but that requires setting up the
appropriate gataway. If you are using this on NT only you may want to
look at the DBI and DBD::ODBC modules.

Sybperl works on WinNT and Unix.
> 3. SybPerl is a program, or a driver?
Sybperl is an extension to the perl programing language, and gives
access to the Sybase DBlibrary and/or Client Library APIs.
> 4. How I can to contact with my server, which has the IP address?
I'm not sure. This is *probably* an ODBC issue.
