I have a Caldera Linux Server on which a Sybase Adaptive Server Database is hosted. I am developing a Front-End application under Windows 95 using Borland C++ which has to have access to the Sybase database, its stored procedures and triggers using a ODBC driver.
Can this type of a system be done using the Samba implementation or will I have to deal with NFS which I dont know nothing about??
Would appreciate any help very much!

You'll have to go for Samba, SMB is designed for Windows therefore it has more features
is faster and implements Domain security.
NFS is designed for UNIX to UNIX connections.
