BDE windows client <-> Informix on UNIX

Hi,

What is the best way to connect a BDE Windows platform client to a Informix
database on a UNIX platform?

Just using TCP/IP with the Informix ODBC driver?
Or having a SNA server with something like Ramba + a 3rd party/Informix
supplied ODBC driver on the client? If so can you suggest any?

Thanks,

siegfried niedinger

You don't have to use ODBC driver. On each Informix installation disk there
is a Windows client app and BDE has it's native Informix driver. These two
should be enough for a connection (naturally, it is faster then ODBC)

Boris
