Hi, i´m trying to access a MSSQL server (in a windows machine in the network) from a Visual Basic Application running under wine, using an ODBC driver.
Since there aren´t any MSSQL drivers for linux i decided to use de native ones, so i installed mdac_typ.exe . Then i configured the DSN using odbcad32.exe but when i tested the connection (configured using tcp/ip) an error message appeared 

Connection failed:
SQLState: '01000'
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP/IP Sockets] ConnectionOpen(Connect())
Connection failed:
SQLState: '08001'
SQL Server Error: 17
Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP/IP Sockets] Specified SQL 
server not found.

Has anyone been able to connect to a MSSQL server remotely using odbc under wine??

Please Help me
