Hi James,

>>The reason is that FreeTDS passes the servername string 'DBX' to the
server in a field of the login record.  Most servers don't pay much
attention to that field, but ASA servers interpret it as a database name. 
FreeTDS is (in effect) asking your server to open a database called 'DBX'.
(Of course, that would be clearer if the error message stated which database
was "nicht gefunden".  But then it would be too easy, wouldn't it?)<<

yepp - problem solved - thanks a lot!
