This probably dates me but in a former life I wrote a conversion
tool. Search for
	+'int.pl' +sybase
on google. No idea whether it still works with current versions

regards

Martin

I just tried it - DBlibrary can read the plain ether format on Solaris
(at least with OpenClient 12.0).

So it would seem that you'd be OK with just "ether" based interfaces
files for both platforms. The "ether" format has the advantage that you
can specify the host name instead of the IP address, which simplify
things if hosts get assigned different IP addresses (if they are moved,
for example, or put on different subnets, etc.)
