I was working with rrjegan17, and closed out the question, but have more questions.. But anyone is welcomed to help.
I am trying to add an entry to the services file.. But the document is sort of vague. is states Windows 95/98 uses c:\windows\services. and Windows NT/2k/xp uses c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\services.. I have Windows server 2003.. I was unsure if services was a folder or a file with no extension.. But this Windows version does not have a winnt.. i found the following
c:\windows\system32\driver\etc\services. where services is a file with no extension.. This is kindof a cross between the winnt & the Windows example.. Do I have the right one?
second.. I don't have the port number.. And may have to beg, plead and find a nice person at the vendors site who would be willing to give me the port# on their side..
I was hopeful either my way to read an informix ODBC already installed
or the following rrjegan17 gave me.. Was a command to extract the info from the database..
On Windows, INFORMIXSQLHOSTS points to the computer whose registry contains the SQLHOSTS subkey.
The next example specifies that the client or database server look for connectivity information on a computer named arizona:
set INFORMIXSQLHOSTS = \\arizona
But I found other sites talking about Informixsqlhosts, and it sounds more like you pointing you connection to something other then the default with this command.. Will it give me info on the host server? Is this something to run on the command line of Windows (or else where)?
