I don't want to use a Windows box. They ODBC server claims to be ODBC 2.0 compliant. Is there any generic way to connect to an ODBC server? Most everything has some specific driver required. I have no such driver and my Googling has come up empty for this specific issue. The company in question claims that I can ONLY use the Windows client to connect, but I don't believe them.

Well, its a shameless commercial plug, but thats exactly what Easysofts
