  • I downloaded that package from slackbuilds.org, but could not make any sense of the documentation to get it to share my mysql server. I am looking for configuration instructions.

  • I Don't think you can do that with unixodbc , afaik , what you should do is first configure mysql to run on your server, second configure ODBC settings on the client side using the odbc driver for the operative sistem.
    That will work....
    It might be possible to use unixodbc to get the result you want but i think this will be more simple and easy to implement.

    please correct me, if i didn't get ur question.

    What u want is to have a MySQL Server on machine server-A, and want to access it through machines client-X, client-Y, client-Z?

    If this is the case then u need to add client's ip addr to MySQL database (authentication stuff).
    database: mysql
    table: user

  • Thank you both for your information I am currently looking at some guides to configure the server to serve information to other clients. Your information has pointed me in the right direction.
