> using freetds version 0.82 on solaris 10. tsql fails to connect to sql server named instances as they contain backslashes. Ie.
> tsql -S'hostname\instancename' -U joe -P bloggs
> A work around is to remove the backslash in freetds.conf. However, this worked fine in freetds 0.62.4.
> The only error is
> 'There was a problem connecting to the server'.
> Its quite important that we maintain the exisiting functionality.
> Has anyone else seen this and is there a solution that would avoid using an unstable version?
Try -H instead of -S
