I don't know enough about the ODBC driver to really say something about
it. But one question is - does it happen only against Cygwin
installations, or also against installatinos with postgresql on a Unix
system? If it's the first, then the blame would be on the cygwin
Second, the psqlODBC driver is *not* included in the win32 port project.
I don't know if there will be a new version of the odbc driver at around
the same time - it's quite possible. See the ODBC driver project page at

Subject: [pgsql-hackers-win32] PostgreSQL Win32 Port / psqlODBC driver
I'm actually very interested in the win32 port you are working on.
We today use PostgreSQL on Cygwin/Windows 2000 for our website in
production state (over 600000 hits per month) and it works great !
Nevertheless, we encounter several times a day a bug wich seems to be
due to psqlodbc (unattended disconnections occur between our webserver
and the database) ...
Just 2 questions :
=> Can you advice us where to found clues or support on this problem ?
We have on our own already looked for answers on the web. We have found
many people facing the same problem but no answers ...
=> In your global win32 project, do you have any plan to release a new
version of the psqlODBC driver ?
Thanks in advance for your precious help on this point and globally for
all the work you are doing on Postgres !
When the bug occures, we get the following message on the PostgreSQL
2004-03-30 15:19:04 LOG: pq_recvbuf: recv() failed: Connection
reset by peer
and simultaneously we get the folowwing message on our scripts on the
Category = Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers
Description = Could not connect to the server;Could not connect to
pgsql-hackers-win32 by date
