The DB2 clients (Runtime, Admin, and Application development) are free and
not the same as DB2 Connect. DB2 Connect is needed (or at least the license
is needed) when accessing a DB2 server on AS/400 or OS/390 from the DB2
Client. DB2 Connect is not needed to connect to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, or
Windows servers.

I would install the Fixpak 6a client (the last fixpak for version 8.1). The
Windows client fixpaks are full installs and do not require the base code
installed first.

Fixpak 7a is for version 8.2 and may not be compatible with your version 8.1
server.
