I am can connect to my database using ./tsql -H hostname -p port - U username 
and do queiries etc.

However when I try to use the freetds.conf file which has an entry like this (connecting to sybase 11.5)
        host = XXXXX
        port = 4000
        tds version = 5.0

./tsql -S ServerName -U XXXX -I ~/.freetds.conf

It asks for the password and I get the unhelpful error message
"There was a problem connecting to the server" and nothing else.

Similarly if I don't specify the exact location of the freetds.conf

Many Thanks in advance,
