Got the DNS and DSN switched around, sorry.

So if the DSN is local that means the database needs to be as well?
My ODBC knowledge is limited so I apologize, but I thought it could be
on another box.

I am assuming that the paramaters  would go in the ODBC Client when
setting up the location of the database.  So if I wanted to access an
access database on an  NT Server  I would specific the IP and Port of the
ODBC Server on the NT Box in my Linux ODBC Client?  Does that make sense?

Thanks For YOur Response,
