connecting IIS to iSeries using ODBC

connecting IIS to iSeries using ODBC

So I'm migrating an IIS webserver over to a new machine and trying to test this ODBC connection.  On the current production webserver, the resident ODBC driver/connection is used to grab customer data from our iSeries and make it available on the web.  When I attempt to hit the website and view my online account the webpage just hangs and hangs as if it is waiting for something to happen.  In troubleshooting this, I've noticed a file DSN too which shows entries for system, user & library etc.  I do not see any entry for a password.  Is this normal?  I checked the user profile on our iSeries, which is displayed within the DSN, and it is not disabled.

RE: connecting IIS to iSeries using ODBC

I wonder if it uses the Client Access settings. I'm a Linux guy myself (unixodbc), but I've used other application for ODBC access on windows. You may be better off passing that information in the connection string from the webserver.
