I had the same problem a while back. It turned out something to do with the configuration files. 

Check the freetds.conf or try setting the env variables FREETDSCONF as documented.

Subject: [freetds] unixODBC and FreeTDS trouble after upgrading to 0.61

Ok, I finally upgraded to 0.61 from 0.60 (see my last post).  Installation went smoothly, however unixODBC no longer works.  The PHP on my webserver has no problems with database connectivity, but when I try to connect with isql I get this:

[unixODBC]Client unable to establish connection
[ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect

Looking at my log file I have this:

2003-06-11 15:07:23.029798 iconv will convert client-side data to the "" character set
2003-06-11 15:07:23.030207 iconv_open: cannot convert to ""
2003-06-11 15:07:23.030257 IP address pointer is NULL
2003-06-11 15:07:23.030298 Server SYBASE not found!

For some reason it looks like its getting NULL values for everything.  I haven't changed anything in unixODBC and I copied over my backedup freetds.conf file from 0.60.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
