Access a SystemDSN remotely

Recommended Posts

dragonlord

Hi,

I have a System DSN configured (Sybase Adaptive Server ANywhere 9.0), which point tos a .db file (symantecghost.db).

How can i access this database from another machine on the same network without the sybase database driver installed?

Any pointers?

are you not able/allowed to install the driver? You need that for the connection (as far as I am aware)....unless you can send a tcp message to another vm/station with the driver to perform, and tcp back the results

It's a restricted environment. Not allowed to install db driver..

Is there an application/website you can crawl through to get the data you need from the db? Otherwise, I'm not sure of a solution...you will have to wait for someone else to respond.

There is an application (SymantecGhost), which uses this db. Trying to scrape info off the app window is not an option....

Not sure if this is overly complex...but maybe a PSExec to a station which has the driver...execute a script that performs a query based on arguments passed through PSExec...then copy the sql output to a file, and back over to your local for manipulation?

Or, you can run the app in a hidden state, and scrape then.
