Ok, with respect, you are free to have that feeling.

No, you only have that error when accessing via ODBC from what I can see.

The error you reported:

[S1000][unixODBC][FreeTDS][SQL Server]Unable to connect to data source

Shows clearly that the driver manager has located and loaded the FreeTDS 
driver, and has passed the connection request to it, the error is 
returned to the driver manager from the driver.
