The exception is that the "isql" tester program works perfectly. None of iodbctest, iodbctestw and ecmserver make a successful connection. Non-ODBC connections using psql work perfectly.

Rogue has been helping me but his experience with ODBC lies in systems other than Fedora. Is there anyone else on the forum who may be able to give assistance?

I will, of course, provide as much information as I can on request, including a ssh-accessible account if necessary.

I've had ODBC working to mysql on Centos 5.4, which should be similar.

I second the suggestion of using tcpdump or wireshark to see what's going over the wire.

Also you could try running the odbc client under strace to see what it's trying to do - possibly there's a problem loading a shared library or something like that.
