Connecting to SQL Server from UNIX


Hello-

Is it possible for me to connect to a MS SQL-Server from a UNIX box via Python
(2.3)? I'm assuming I would need a driver, but I looked on microsoft.com and
could not find anything. Anyone out there ever try to do this?

Thanks

No surprise - microsoft wont do that for you...
What you need is unix-odbc, the freedts-driver and pyodbc - google for
them, and use the latest versions.
