Unanswered: Connection failed: Database server not running
I have created a new sybase database dbsyb.db on my server machine with sybase central 9 and its run correctly.
Now I'd like to connect at dbsyb.db from my client workstation via ODBC
I create a new ODBC with these parameters:
driver ODBC: Adaptive server anywhere 7.0
Data source name: dbsyb
Description: database sybase
Checked: Microsoft applications and prevent driver.........
Describe cursor behavior: If required
Checked: Supply user ID and password
Server name: dbsyb
Start line: -p 4096 -x tcpip -d
CHECKED: Allow multiple record....
When I try Test Connection I get error:
Connection failed: Database server not running
What I wrong?

Have you tried looking in the errorlog of your dbserver for errors or warnings? Have you verified that your dbserver is indeed not running?I'm not crazy, I'm an aeroplane!

You can also have your datasource to log most of data transfer between odbc driver manager and database. To do this use odbc data source administrator then enable tracing, you can also enter log file name there. The odbc log file will contain detailed information if a connection failed.
I ll also check odbc network settings on my other computers, if there are discrepancies with yours, I'll answer asap.
Btw, free developer version SQL Anywhere 12 has been released recently.
Here are my settings for tcp/ip on Network tab of ODBC Configuration for the clients (anywhere 10) :
mark: TCP/IP, enter: HOST=135432145;PORT=4096
*** where 135432145 is IP for example 220.127.116.11 of your server computer and PORT is PORT#
*** Important: HOST, PORT must be written in capitals, and NO spaces in HOST string ***
*** I took PORT 4096 from your start line
mark: shared memory
Liveness timeout: 120 sec
Idle timeout: 240 sec
Buffer size: 1460
(These are three standard values)
You should drop -p 4096 -x tcpip -d from field Start line.
You should also read chapter SQL "Anywhere ODBC driver" of product manual dbjten10.pdf, especially on page 18++.
