Windows Client for db2

P: n/a
I have a SAP demo version of db2 running on linux. I want to connect
to it using a windows client, rather than use the CL query tool on
Linux.

What do I need on the windows side to connect to it? Also, do I need
some sort of listener process on Linux?

I'd appreciate any help.

Assuming that you demo version DOES NOT USE UDB Personal Edition (run
the command: "db2licm -l" from the instance owner's id on the linux box
to see); you will need to istall the UDB client on the Windows system.

Catalog the TCPIP) node for the linux box, catalog the database(s) then
connect away from your Win box. Explanations of the CATALOG commands are
in the Command Reference manual.

UDB Personal edition does not allow remote connections. That's why you
can't do this if SAP's demo version uses PE.
