DSN-Less Connection String for Informix ODBC driver

Content-Type: text/plain;

Since I hadn't heard back from anyone, I did some more research and playing
around and got the right combination and here are results:

For DSN-Less connection string that can be used with Informix Client-SDK 2.5
ODBC driver to connect using Perl (5.005_3) on Win32, DBI, DBD::ODBC (0.28)

1. Once the Informix Client-SDK has been installed, there is a Informix
Client-SDK utility called SetNet32 that has be run to set up the proper
Informix vars, such as host, server, service, etc. for a given
server/database and then that server has to be designated as the default
2. Also make sure in your winXX/system32/drivers/etc/Services file, the
proper Informix service and port no./service are set up.

If the above is done then the following should work in order to connect to
Informix using DBI and ODBC without a DSN (

my $dsn ='driver={INFORMIX 3.32 32
# protocol name above is olsoctcp, other protocols will work as long as
supported by network
$dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:ODBC:$dsn", { RaiseError => 1, AutoCommit => 1});

DSN...Leave home without it!

DSN-less connection string problem
I am trying to interface with 2 sybase databases, from an MS Access application (97). I would like the user to be able to switch between the 2 sybase databases. If I use a file DSN the user has to close the application and then restart it to connect to a different server/db. I would like to avoid this and any configuring of the users machines and connect through VBA only. I've managed to get some of the functionality I want by using this connection string: "ODBC;driver={SYBASE SYSTEM 11};SRVR=SYB4;LogonID=yyyyyy;Password=xxxxx;Database=dbname" I can use the abo...

Hello everyone: I deployed SQL Anywhere 9 and have set up DSN's to access the db properly. I have a need to restrict access to the database to "read-only" if accessing outside the main application. I am concerned about savvy users being able to link to the DB tables via MS access provided they know the DSN name. What I want to be able to do is: 1) keep the current DSN configuration but give the current user on the DSN "Read-Only" access 2) From within the authorized application, switch the links on all the tables to log in as another user and passw...

Sybase, ADO and DSN-Less Connection strings
Hi, I am new to Sybase and more familiar with SQL Server 7.0. I would like to use ADO and DSN-Less connection strings to access my Syabase databases. Can anyone provide me with a sample DSN-Less connection string for Sybase access? I am using ASE Thanks Chris Simeone If using ODBC something like this should be OK: sql = "{Driver = Sybase ASE ODBC Driver};UID=????;PWD=????;Database=????" Any of the ODBC Driver Attributes can be added to that line above - if you have one of the older Sybase ODBC Driver Kit docs there should be a reference that...

DSN-less connection string to ASE: our solution (and it works!)
Hi Guys! We were on troubles setting up a DSN-LESS connection string to make "pass through queries" from MS Access versus ASE (error message says about an unknown "Error 7778" ) We searched on google groups but all the solutions founded didn't work for us. But (TAH-DAH!) this is a lucky day 'cos we mixed up the above solutions and - surprisingly - it works! This is our connection string to make pass through queries (and to use DAO programming): ODBC;DRIVER={SYBASE ASE ODBC Driver};NA=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,<port_number>;SERVER=xxx.xxx.xxx....
