Can't connect to MaxDB on Linux Host


I've installed MaxDB on a Linux Server. This works fine, and local on linux I can connect to the database.

When I try to connect from my local DBMGui I become the message "-4 communication error".

After that i tryed to connect via dbmcli from my WindowsXP Workstation with this command:

DBMCli -n lir3max1 -d MAXDB1 -u DBM,DBM

But I only recive this Error Message:

Error! Connection failed to node lir3max1 for database MAXDB1: wrong DLL-Version, (check: SQLTCPx.DLL)

Can anybody help me to solve this problem.

    Hi Johannes,

    could you please do the following for me:

    1. Issue 'set' from a commandline window and copy the output in your answer here. It should display the current environment settings for the user with which you logged on.

    2. Search for 'sqltcp' in the registry (using Regedit). Please let me know what results you get.

    3. Tell me which MaxDB (client) version you have installed on your local Windows machine.
