    Wink Unanswered: DB2 7.2 Client to 8.1 Server Connection Problem

    I'm having a problem making a jdbc connection from a 7.2 Fixpak 9 client to a 8.1 server. The system just hangs at the point of connection to a database. I have tried copying the db2java.zip from the 8.1 server to the client and this did not work. I have no problems connecting to the server from the 7.2 command center and the command line processor

    Any Ideas?

    My understanding is that you cannot connect 7.2 <-> 8.1 via jdbc b/c Type 4 jdbc drivers are unavailable in 7.2 while 8.1 only has Type 4 drivers (for now).
