[freetds] Does FreeTDS support access to SQL Server 2000/2005 from HPUX 11i on 64-bit Itanium

Can you please tell me what you mean by right version of everything?  In
my current freetds.config file, it says "freetds.conf,v 1.12".  Is this
the correct version?  Should I be using TDS Version 8.0 for both SQL
Server 2000 and 2008?

Thanks,
Betty

Answer to all questions is Yes.  FreeTDS works on any 64-bit
architecture for which it compiles.  

64-bit ODBC is a little tricky though.  The ODBC 3.0 specification was
not 64-bit clean, meaning there were places where pointers were passed
as integers.  AIUI this has all been resolved if you use the right
versions of everything, especially of the Driver Manager.  

HTH.
