Hi Anandky,

For Crystal Reports, as far as I know, the only Unix support they have is for Apache Web Server.
There is a "web connector" that can be installed on the web server but you still need to have the other components running on an NT box.  It's not tested for Linux, but presumably it would work in the same manner.
I don't have any personal experience on this, but some reliable friends of mine told me about it :-)

Goodluck,
jrmn

Keep in mind too that you can use CRW to create your reports and either export to or print to Adobe Acrobat format (or Word, Excel, HTML, etc) and serve up only the completed reports without providing full access to the underlying database.

Split points because the solutions provided by DRRYAN3 and jrmn are (AFAIK) correct.
