Hi list,
 I installed postgres 7.0.2  friday on a linux box
running mandrake v6.0. I configured --with-tcl,
--with-odbc, --with-x. It compiled with no problems.
PGAccess works fine on the linux box but I can't get
it running on my win95 box. PGAdmin won't work either.

The sick thing is I can get MS Query to SQL stuff into

PGAdmin gives the error:
Error: 3706, Provider cannot be found. It may not be
properly installed. 
Function: frmODBCLogon, cmdOK_Click

PGAccess chokes out:
Error trying to connect to database 'testdb' on host 
PostgreSQL error message:Connection to database failed

connectDBStart() -- unknown hostname:

I can telnet and ping the linux box. 
I can use MS Query to access the db
I invoked the Postmaster using 'pg-ctl -o -i start'
pgaccess works fine on the linux box

I couldn't find a copy of libpq.dll coresponding to
the 7.0.2 release 
The libpq.dll I found claims version 7,0,0,0

Any help would be appreciated
