what I'm building is a simple tool that can attempt to log in to any
It will probably fail on the vast majority and I expect that
But, since the Sybase DBLib would call the message or error handler I
could check the codes there and see if a failed login was the reason
these were being called. If that's the case then the server is up and
refusing this login which is OK
However, if the FreeTDS DBLib doesn't work that way how would you
suggest I try the server to "ping" it
Essentially that's all I need.
I suppose I could parse the interfaces file myself and try and simply
open a socket to that server and port and see if that gets refused
