Thanks David. I will give that a try later today. Sounds possible.

Lots of suggestions Alan, and perhaps you have seen the issue resolved. If not, can you update your hosts file with a name for the ip address and then go through the ODBC administrator?

I don't have access to ODBC on this licence so I can't check it, but at first thought it seems possible to me.

Kind regards

I need some suggestions. Here is the scenario:

I have a single SAS dataset on a Unix machine. No Samba installed on this 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 to read in the SAS dataset. I have been told that we cannot use Windows NFS either.

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 is not available and the SAS local provider needs a physical mapping to read it in via OleDb.

Any ideas?
