All you need to do is install the appropriate ODBC drivers on the client side. They translate from the ODBC API to the Postgresql network API. Hmm. You may need the postgresql libraries on the client as well. I already had the postgresql client port installed on the client side when I installed odbc, and may not have noticed. > New to ODBC, figured FBSD is a good place to learn it. Any help or > pointers appreciated. All I can recommend is that you keep asking questions on -questions. I just installed ODBC to use with Applix Office. It was a pita because I was use a newer version of Postgres than Applix Office supported, and a newer version of Applix Office than Postgres supported. Once I found the proper drivers, it worked fine. <mike -- Mike Meyer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://www.mired.org/consulting.html Independent WWW/Perforce/FreeBSD/Unix consultant, email for more information.
