If you are running on windows, you don't need to pass the username and password fields, they should get picked up automatically from your login.

    Yes that's true, and that works fine, but we are trying to pull from a Linux server. This makes the connection that much trickier.
      in that case the issue is going to be a configuration issue with freetds. It took me forever to get it right. remember that you have to configure the servers in freetds.conf and the dbs in the .odbc.conf file in the home directory of the user running the code.

        Ok, I think I understand the config files. It's unfortunate that this has become less portable because of that. Would you happen to have an example dsn that uses the config file? Or does freetds automatically look at the file if the dsn is missing information?
