    Hi,

    In Windows you need install Client-SDK, next configure this running setnet32.

    Add in %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, the host server and add in %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\services, name and number service.
    Please read Ibm-Informix Administrator Guide documentation.

    Gustavo.
