I have installed FreeTDS 0.62, compiled with PHP under Linux Redhat 9. 
SyBase server is ASA 8.0.

I send this command:

And get this error:
Sybase message: ASA Error -83: Specified database not found (severity 

I tried 'telnet 3030', which works fine. I'm also able to 
connect through ODBC to the same IP and port w/o problems.

I read on this list that the problem could be not sending the data base 
name with the server name. Is that the problem, and if so, how do I 
send it?

Many thanks,
