AseConnectionUsing the sql.ini file
If the server isn't aliased, you have to use the ip address and port number in the connection string, not ideal as these may change occassionally. Installing sybase on a machine, you will have a "sql.ini" file that maps an alias name to an ip address and a port. That file can be rolled out to all users, and the sql.ini updated when necessary. Use the following connection string to force the AseConnection object to use the interface file.
