Testing the Connection

You can use DataDirect Test to verify your connection.
To test the Driver Manager connection, follow these steps:
1. Navigate to the installation directory. The default location is:
*Windows systems: Program Files\Progress\DataDirect\JDBC_60\testforjdbc
*UNIX and Linux systems: /opt/Progress/DataDirect/JDBC_60/testforjdbc 
For UNIX/Linux, if you do not have access to /opt, your home directory will be used in its place.
2. From the testforjdbc folder, run the platform-specific tool:
*testforjdbc.bat (on Windows systems)
* (on UNIX and Linux systems)
The Test for JDBC Tool window appears:

7. If required, enter your user name and password in the fields provided.
