Hoping someone has experience with this. I'm trying to set up a database link from my Oracle on Linux database to my SQL Server 2005 instances. Research shows that I need a SQL Server ODBC driver on the Linux box (duh), my questions are:

1a. Does anyone have suggestions on which driver to use? It appears that I have to pay for all/most of them.
1b. Anyone ever used TDS (www.freetds.org) for this implementation?

2. Has anyone set this up, maybe provide a link to something fairly terse? The Oracle documentation is very wordy and doesn't specifically lay out the solution.

TIA.

You actually don't need Linux driver to connect to Oracle I have used Oracle in Solaris, HP and IBM Iseries and all that is needed is the Oracle client for the Windows operating system and your TNSNames.Ora file.
