ODBC and MSSQL under Debian/Ubuntu

In just two days, I came up with two different reasons to point to Landure’s technical doc’s site.
This time, it was to setup a connection to a MSSQL server from a Debian server. This type of connection is incredibly badly documented on the internet in general (or maybe I didn’t look the right way), and in the end everything points to FreeTDS, a library and program that allows this type of connection.

    But this is a quite common problem, and i think you will find more about this bug on google.
