in thread How can I connect/access an MS access database from solaris?

Actually ... the only "web" part of this, is that the MS Access database lives on a web server at a remote server farm. And I'm trying to insert a record from another IP through PERL CGI code.

I was hoping to use something like:
dbi:DriverName:database=database_name;host=hostname;port=port adapted as such:
dbi:ODBC:database=DSN_name;host=ip_address_of_IIS_box;port=dsn_port

I've loaded DBI and DBD::ODBC onto my Solaris box through CPAN. But DBD:ODBC wants an ODBC driver to point to. And I'm having a heck of a time finding a free ODBC driver for Solaris.
