I believe you are trying to connect to what is known as a named instance. This was recently added to FreeTDS (supported by FreeTDS in the current release, I think). If you don't have the latest version of FreeTDS you should probably upgrade (or ask on the FreeTDS mailing list.)

    I am running the latest stable version of FreeTDS (0.64) and submitted a question to their mailing list. I might be able to connect via ODBC, but I remain hopeful that the FreeTDS mailing list might have some insight.

    Thank you,
      Got it! I had the host that the server resided on. I was able to update the connection string to the following:

      my $dbh=DBI->connect("DBI:Sybase:host=<hostname>;port=2832",$user,$password);

      Since the hostname didn't have a slash in it, I was able to use the port that the server was using. I was able to connect so that I can continue testing.

      I appreciated the comments!
