If you don't have SAS running anywhere at all, I don't have a clue. But
if you have SAS on the UNIX side, you can run a SAS/SHARE server to
expose libraries to the network and use the SAS-supplied ODBC driver
and/or OLE DB data provider to do things list like.
The cool thing about this (to me) is creating SAS/Access views to other
databases (with my database credentials) for cheap reporting.

Subject: SAS dataset on Unix challenge
I need some suggestions. Here is the scenario:
I have a single SAS dataset on a Unix machine. No Samba installed on
machine and I have been told no for getting it installed.
I have a .NET application on a Windows Server 2003. The .NET app needs
read in the SAS dataset. I have been told that we cannot use Windows NFS
How do I get to this dataset? Someone suggested using ODBC with an IP
address but I have never seen that done before. Integration Technologies
not available and the SAS local provider needs a physical mapping to
in via OleDb.
