Obtaining Open Client 
Author Message
 Obtaining Open Client

Hi,

I just spent and hour at Sybases web site trying to obtain (free
download or purchase) the Open Client software.  What a painful
experience!

Can anyone point me in direction whether it be a VAR or whatever that I
can download/purchase a legal copy of Open Client for Windows NT?

I am writing a Visual Basic program to balance data from a Sybase 10.0
DB running on Solaris to an Oracle DB running elsewhere.  I have the
SQL Server ad-hoc ODBC driver configured but the simplest operations
never return. Simple selects are great but don't run a "select count(*)
from /table/" because it never returns (hours later I kill the program).

If I am way off base and should tackle this another way, suggestions
are always welcome.

Thanks in advance for your time!
Rob

Hi Rob,

I have no experience with our website, sorry you had trouble with it.
In the USA, you can also call 1-800-8SYBASE to order software.

If this is a permanent solution for keeping the two db's in sync, then
investigate sybase replication server which can talk to Oracle via another
sybase gateway product.

Welcome to the world of Sybase.  I've spent the last month calling and
e-mailing Sybase in Australia and the US, trying to buy a copy of ASE
12.  Not a single Sybase person has responded.  No wonder ASE is going
down the drain.

I'll be recommending all our clients switch to Oracle or SQL Server.

Yes, Sybase is already out of the top ten TPC-C Results by Performance.
I'll recommend switch to IBM DB2 which is number one in cluster and
non-cluster environment.
