Our sybase server is 11.03 running on solaris 5.6
and our client is sybase-openclient-11.1.1-1.i386.rpm
running on red hat 6.1 cartman. COULD it be a problem
that this linux open client is from the 11.9.3 distribution
and our sybase server is 11.03 ?
Also, I just copied my interfaces file from the solaris box
to my linux box and deleted all the lines EXCEPT the query
line. Do I need a master line in my linux client
interfaces file ? So I guess you use clear text OR hex
right ? more below.
