Connect to Sybase ASE ?

Just trying to use freetds based on what I've gleaned from the list and
various members who have helped out with private e-mails
But I can't get it to connect to Sybase ASE 12
I grabbed the freetds-current.tgz distribution from
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/freetds --with-tdsver=4.2
--enable-dbmfix --enable-shared --enable-static
edited /usr/local/freetds/interfaces to add the servers I wanted to
connect to (they are correct entries)
the program simply tries to connect and check whether the login
succeeded or failed so I can essentially make a sybase pinger
But, the following ALWAYS says the connection failed regardless. I
always get the NOT Connected message printing out
I can connect to the exact same SQL server using JDBC from the same
client so I know the connection works.
printf("Attempt to connect to %s\n", argv) ;
dbproc = dbopen( login , argv ) ;
if ( dbproc == NULL )
printf("NOT connected\n") ;
return retCode ;
Login is NOT null. And, the error & message handlers that I've defined
do not get called.
Is freetds not functionally the same as dblib ?
I know this bit of code works with Sybase' libraries on Solaris for
versions 1192 and 1200.
