I have VB5 talking to a db2 server on an as/400 by using DB2 connect Personal Edition version 5's ODBC drivers on the client. Don't know anything about unix, but if you can use SNA you should be OK.

You need an ODBC driver on the Windows client that can talk to the DB2 database.  Depending on the ODBC driver used you may also need a program to install on the server which talks the same protocol.

Intersolv have ODBC drivers at

The SequeLink versions require a server program installed on the DB server.  They also have a new driver for DB2 (haven't tried this) which should talk directly to DB2.
