Usually, you connect using the computername of the server:

isql -Scomputername -Uuserid -Ppassword
use databasename
go

LOL - that's why I thought I was experiencing deja-vu.  Maybe firozepasha doesn't know how to respond to comments, since he registered on 9/22/04?  (Type into the comment box near the bottom, and hit the Submit button).

Here i will tell you what exactly i did

1. I installed Sybase Client
2. Configured dsedit
3. Opened dos prompt and tried executing the isql command but i get the error

Password:
CT-LIBRARY error:

Did you substitute the actual name of the server, instead of literally "servername"?  Same with username and password.

What does the 'ping' say ?
In dsedit select the necessary servername and press 'ping' button on the toolbar.

If it's not pingable, do the following:
 - check, do You use correct protocol (tcp, namedpipe etc)
 - check with windows 'ping' utility, if the tcp host available
 - check with windows 'telnet' utility, if something running on the server host/port

If it's pingable, check the environment variables PATH, SYBASE.

And of course, classical Windows 'solution' - restart the machine and try one more time :-)

it is not the "servername" that tha database is running on, it is the sybase servername that you have registered in your initialisation file

Found in:
%sybase%\ini\sql.ini    (windows)
$SYBASE/interfaces     (linux/unix)

you can NOT just use an IP, is must be a registered server.

Is the Sybase service running on the box that you installed it on?  I had a similar problem with MSDE.

I object, Venabili has no Sybase experience and is not qualified to be a CV in this TA

Objection, this question should not be deleted, the question has been asked and answered

the user want to use ISQL via an IP address and the answer is that it can not be done - ISQL will only connect to registered server names.
