    Oracle Transparent Gateway for ODBC

    tx103108
      Is the Oracle Transparent Gateway for ODBC only available on Windows platforms? ODBC drivers are available for Linux and *nix platforms but it appears from reading the documentation that you can only install the Oracle Transparent Gateway for ODBC on a Windows O/S.  However, I also found a certification matrix that shows the following O/Ses certified with Oracle DB 10g/11g and the ODBC Gateway:

      RH 4,5 and OEL 4,5 and SLSE 10
      Solaris 9 (update 6), 10
      AIX 5.3
      HP-UX 11.23, 11.31

      The Oracle 11gR1 database that will use the gateway is running on RH 5.

      Cheers!

          The ODBC gateway is called Database Gateway for ODBC and it is available for several Unix platforms.

          Have a look at the certification matrix which can be found here:

          When you have access to My Oracle Support portal, then you can check out the note:
          How to Configure DG4ODBC on 64bit Unix OS (Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX Itanium) to Connect to Non-Oracle Databases Post Install          [Document 561033.1]     

          which gives you a step by step instruction how to configure DG4ODBC release 11.

            Thanks ... how do I get this document that you referred to?
            Where can I get Sybase Client and ODBC drivers for Linux so I can use the Oracle Gateway for ODBC? (Preferrably the Sybase products for free on Linux).
            Or are you aware of a Client-less (Wire Protocol) ODBC driver for Sybase?

            Cheers!
