Hi Experts,

I'm struggling with something that I thought would be very easy!  I'm trying to find a simple / free ODBC driver for IBM DB2.  I have a Windows 2003 machine with DB2 on a network and I need to setup System DSN (ODBC Sources) on the client machines on this network to connect to it.

I've searched IBM's website but it's more difficult to find something than Microsoft's site!  There's something called iSeries Client Acces....  I couldn't exactly figure out what it is...  I also could not locate a download for it....

I've searched google without luck and I've searched EE as well.  There were a lot of accepted questions similar to mine but not one worked for me,  Either they were too expensive or the links didnt' work.

Recently, i had to do a similar thing with mysql.  I searched mysql's site for 2mins, found something called MyODBC 3.51 - it worked.  So simple!!!

Where can I find a simple and free ODBC driver for DB2?

Thank you
