 Ingres Net and ODBC for Ingres 6.4.

I am trying to connect a Windows 2000 Server to an Ingres database
running on a Unix server. I have installed the Ingres ODBC (V2.80.00.72
software on the Windows 2000 server, but I am unable to select a V-Node
other than "local". After creating a new 'vnode' entry in the Unix
server using the "netu" utility, I created a new ODBC DSN again but
still see the V-Node as "local" only. Why? Please help?

Also, do i need to install Ingres Net on the Windows 2000 Server before
installing the Ingres ODBC? If yes, where can I download Ingres Net?

Thanks in advance.

You need a vnode for the unix server on the Windows client.

Think of a vnode as a local name for a remote Ingres installation.
The vnodes on the unix server are irrelevant to the Windows client machine.
The only vnodes your ODBC stuff can see are the local ones on the
Windows machine.  This should (partially) answer your next question, too.

You have to have Ingres Net installed and set up before you can set up
an ODBC data source pointing at Ingres.  I'm not sure if there is a
Net download;  if you have the Ingres installation CD set, you should be
able to load a Windows client from it (typically the Windows stuff is on
CD 1).

You can't use CA's ODBC with out a net server running on the local PC. So
you do need to install Ingres NET or Ingres client. ODBC might be free but
the client is not.

Isn't it about time that CA started offering a basic windows Ingres Net
client for free download? (as opposed to just the ODBC driver which is
useless without it.)

I'd have thought it would encourage more people to use Ingres and might even
increase market share...
