Hi jkl,

I did use freetds.conf and the [dataserver] name did matches the name of 
database I wish to use and still doesn't work.

Any more idea?

You will not be able to connect to an ASA server unless you use the
freetds.conf file, and the [dataserver] name matches the name of the
database you wish to use.
