Connecting to Sybase on NT

I am trying to use SQSH 1.7 and Freetds 0.47 to connect to a NT server 
running Sybase.  I believe it is Sybase 10 because the client libraries 
installed by the vendors software on a PC is client libraries version 

I have tried configuring tds versin 4.2, 4.6 and 5.0 without success.  I 
believe I am using a valid username and password.  I can successfully 
access a MSSQL7 server so I know I have both freetds and sqsh working 

$ sqsh -S symposium-server

$ cat /tmp/freetds.log
2000-04-19 01:33:41 leaving ct_connect() returning 0
2000-04-19 01:33:41 inside ct_con_props() action = CS_GET property = 26
2000-04-19 01:33:41 inside ct_con_drop()

Any ideas?
