Connecting to an Informix Database from Windows

Connecting to an Informix Database from Windows

Use ODBC to connect to an Informix database on Windows. Create an ODBC data source by using the DataDirect ODBC drivers installed with Informatica. To ensure compatibility between Informatica and databases, use the appropriate database client libraries.
If you use the DataDirect ODBC driver provided by Informatica, you do not need the database client. The ODBC wire protocols do not require the database client software to connect to the database.
