Please try compiling SQSH ( to make 
sure your basic connectivity is working ok. It is a very useful tool for 
testing and debugging anyway, and I'd reccomend anyone using freetds or 
openclient to make it part of your toolkit.

>From the description it sounds like the ip address is incorrect (if the 
port where incorrect you'd get a connection refused instead).  You may try 
telneting directly into the SQL Server (like: telnet sqlhost 1433) and 
seeing if you get a good connection.  If so, it is probably a problem with 
the interfaces file (spaces are important in the interfaces file).

I have setup the $SYBASE environment variable... I have added our server 
the interfaces file... it just times out.

Any ideas?
