Client compatibility

P: n/a

Can a v9.1 fp2 Windows client connect to a v7.1 OS/390 server via a
v8.2 AIX ESE db2connect link? We can make and test a connection
through the client config utility but when we actually try to connect
through an application we get the SQL0805 indicating the need to bind
the client. I want to find out whether all we need to do is
successfully execute the binds before I pursue this further.

Yes, that combination works.

Thanks for the confirmation, Phil. This aspect of DB2 (need to bind
new drivers and tools) is a royal PITA.
