Gee now that's a really great feature for Oracle. (Requiring Informix to be
in Quiescent mode :-)No wonder why they are killing Informix in sales! I can
see it now,
Oracle Salesman: " See! Our product works great. Its just that Informix's
engine doesn't want to
respond! That's why it doesn't work! It's Informix's fault. ....."

[Sorry I couldn't resist! :-]
Quiescent mode means Informix has a shared memory segment, but is not "up"
its still down and
not excepting connections.

Hmmm,It could be how Oracle does authentication.
Whats interesting is that you have to connect to the database to see the
system tables.

Why don't you try Openstep with its EOF adaptors? It can connect to Oracle,
Sybase, and
even Informix right out of the box!
