Summary: file based dns does not connect

Initial Comment:

I just tried the combination of 
8.1.100 => 8.0.4debian
8.1.100 => 8.1win

Im unable to connect by mean of a file based dns entry.
I just get the error "could not connect to the server (#113)

Using the computer-dns with the same connection options works really well.
Unable to find a configuration fault. Also using pgadmin or jdbc3 as client works proper.

1. Create a file DSN with all the data for the connection.
2. Locate the file, normally it will be stored in C:\Program Files\Common Files\ODBC\Data Sources
3. Edit the file with any text editor.
4. Add a last line to the file containing the password:

EXAMPLE: Imagine the password is 123456789, then the line to add to the DSN file would be


Hope it will work for you.

This occurs when the File DSN is being created, if it cannot be verified. Elements of the connect string are generated only after the connection has been made, so if you don't fully connect, only the 'Driver={PostgreSQL xxx}' section is written to the file DSN.

To create usable DSNs, when prompted to enter the server details, make sure that all details required to connect are entered and that the server is configured to allow the incoming connection. The file DSN will then be saved with all required parameters *except* the password.

Just tried the 8.1.101 odbc driver.

The error message changed to "fe_sendauth: no password supplied (#113)"

Still it works proper with user/system based dns. File based DNS seem to fail (Access 2003 used as Client)
