Hello,
Do I need db2connect to connect an ODBC client application (Windows)
to a DB2 database on a Unix platform (SUN) ?

No, you need only the DB2 run time client:

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/ps/produc...client/runtime

Thank you Blair.
Perhaps could you also tell me if it is possible to use db2connect
(version 8.1) over ssl ?
And if yes where can I find user's guide for that.

Kind regards

Not yet. Security plug-ins will be available in future releases to
encrypt data on the wire.
