PB5 Desktop version and Adaptive server 7.0

PB5 Desktop version and Adaptive server 7.0

PB5 Desktop version and Adaptive server 7.0

I completed the development of my app and it works fine with a local DB.

I purchased Adaptive server Anywhere version 7 and installed it on my network "Server" machine. It hosts all my data files for other things.

I installed the pb deployment kit and the client software for ASA7 to 1 machine and setup the ODBC connection.

I start the DB on the server with "Start dbsrv7 -z -x tcpip -n pbparts -gd all" The server log shows it starts up fine ready to accept connections. Back on the client I open the odbc manager to test the connection using DSN=pbparts;UID=dba;PWD=sql; on the db tab server name = pbparts database name pbparts database file "V\pbparts.db" on the network tab I have tcpip selected go to test connection I get error message "database server not running" go to cmd window, type in dblocate I get server name = pbparts address = server:2638 which shows the db is up. When I look at the DB log it shows liveness timeout 125 then client disconnect. I can dbping the db server and it connects fine using:
dbping -d -c "dbf=v:\pbparts.db;astart=yes;uid=dba;pwd=sql" or dbping -c "eng=pbparts;CommLinks=tcp(HOST=;PORT =2638)"

The fact that the ODBC admin can not connect to the DB indicates something wrong but I can figure out what it could be. Any ideas or suggestions?

thanks kevin
