hi all,<BR><BR>kinda silly question but, is dsn (as it related to data source names) an MS only product or can it be used with linux?<BR><BR>TIA<BR><BR>bastien
.. Data Source Name.<BR><BR>What do you want Linux to do?
using php to access a ms access db that has been ftp'd to a cobalt linux server....the odbc parameters for php require a DSN...<BR><BR>
.. I think MS Access databases can only be used on Microsoft servers.<BR><BR>And, not to shoo away posters, but the PHP.NET site may be a MUCH better resource w/ their forums than an ASP board.
Microsoft Access not able to be on UNIX or Linux
well there are work arounds to make win32 apps run in linux...but this question specifically was about the dsn and its applicability to other os' than just ms...<BR><BR>not my app any way, just researching for a friend...<BR><BR>thanks
