The Easysoft ODBC-ODBC Bridge allows applications on one machine to access ODBC data sources on another. It supports multiple concurrent connections from multiple clients to multiple target databases. The principle application is to enable access from Linux and Unix platforms to remote ODBC databases. For example, Apache/PHP programs on Linux can read/write data held on MS SQL Server on Windows, and Perl programs can read/write data held in a MS Access database. Supported applications include Applixware, Open Office, Python, Rexx/SQL, mnGoSearch, OpenLDAP, and Oracle sqlplus. Supported platforms include Linux, MacOSX, IBM zSeries, Windows and various Unix flavors.

Release Notes: Several bug fixes were made. The memory requirements were reduced. Minor enhancements were made, including better error handling for UNIX install scripts. An installation problem was fixed in which the installer could mistakenly believe untar operations had failed on Sinix. The "groups=yes" option was added to the OOB Server configuration for xinetd. Without this option, some xinetds (such as the one that comes with Mac OS X 10.2) output a setgroups warning and close the socket without running the OOB Server. A problem in UNIX OOB Server which could raise a SIGPIPE when the client disconnects was fixed.
