Debian - Connect To Informix Database

Can anyone point me toward information on setting up a Debian server ODBC connection to an Informix server? I have a Windows server set up with the Informix drivers in ODBC and I'd like to do the same thing on Debian so that my Rails apps can query the database beneath our call-logging software. My Google searching only came up with really out-dated results. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Well, ODBC is a Windows thing, unixODBC is a parallel effort to allow porting of ODBC apps to UNIX/LINUX but uses new drivers. You proably want a tcp/ip client to let Debian apps connect to Informix wherever. Easysoft makes a lot of this-to-that sort of ODBC tools, not surprising since Nick is the foundation of unixODBC.

rails seems to know how to talk to an Informix adapter, so you might do better to skip the ODBC: Informix adapter for Ruby on Rails

JDBC is platform independent, which is nicer!
