Well, you're using very old technology. Can you not use a more recent
version of ASA, or even another RDBMS? (If I were to write a TDS gateway
(such as you propose below) it would be for Postgres.)

Yes. Your daemon would be a gateway. It would play the role of "SQL
Anywhere Open Server".
You might want to begin by looking in the src/server directory. That
server might be a good starting point for you.
It is not a project for the faint of heart, however. Although a good bit
of TDS 4.2 is implemented in our server, connecting it to your UDP backend
would be a challenge. Let us know how it goes.
