Hi list,

I'm attempting to install freetds 0.63 onto a Solaris sparc box. I'm unable
to get past the 'make check' stage.

...10 of 13 tests failed...

It gets as far as 
 t0001.c: Testing login, logout
here it hangs for a minute or so, before quickly scrolling a list of failures.
Presumably, the failed login is responsible for all failures as the post-login
tests will fail.

I have configured PWD with:

and freetds.conf with:
        host = mysql.domain.com
        port = 1433
        tds version = 7.0

The remote mssql server is SQL2000 patch8.00.760 SP3
I configured the freetds makefile with:
./configure --with-tdsver=7.0 --with-prefix=/usr/local/freetds

I can't telnet from the solaris box to the mysql server on port 1433. I also
can't telnet from my desktop machine, but form here I am able to connect
via server enterprise mgr. Is this a problem?

Your assistance is appreciated
