    Unanswered: -908 connection problem

    Hi all,
    I set up IDS 9.40 on windows NT without any problem.
    But when I try to connect to the database server with DB-ACCESS
    I got the message = -908 attempt to connect to the database server failed ...

    Below the customisation parameters I used :

    * Hosts file: localhost guilheint

    * services
    turbo 1526/tcp #ol_guilheint1

    * Sqlhosts registry

    informix server = ol_guilheint1
    hostname = guilheint
    protocol = onsoctcp
    service = turbo

    Any help will be appreciated
    Many Thanks

    I only knows IDS on UNIX.
    Do you have set INFORMIXSERVER environment variable, cause you can have multiple instances per machine.
    And at first installation you have to initialize you db , with oninit -i .
