Hi, Ammon, I would have responded this morning, but I assumed someone with more knowledgeable would have answered by now. If the SQL server is set to be accessible over the intranet, this access is most likely occurring through TCP. REBOL can be installed on the Linux box and set to access the server via the network. To my knowledge the only freebie SQL server access software is for MySQL. /Command offers Oracle, etc. I offer 10,000 apologies in advance if I either don't know what I'm talking about or have misunderstood your requirements. --Scott Jones
