    Unanswered: Problem installing Oracle ODBC drivers on RHEL5

    Hello,
    I'm trying to install and test ORACLE ODBC connecition on RHEL5 32 bits.
    I'm using unixODBC 2.2.14 and oracle instantclient 11.2 but when I test isql it seems to be trying something but returns after a while with no message (using verbose mode). Have anyone already installed the ODBC driver in RHEL5? have found any similar problem? I'm trying to connect to oracle 10g XE running on windows.

    You don't need ODBC to do so.

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    I do need to use ODBC because an upper software layer needs it and can't change that.

    consider using strace to gain some visibility of what happens behind the scenes.

    Is isql an ODBC utility? I thought it was for Sybase and MS SQL Server.

    One thing to check on the Windows side is that the firewall is open for Oracle's port. You may need to do the same on the RHEL side, as well, but I would expect a shorter wait time for the error, if you were getting blocked there.
