I am unable to connect to a MSSQL 2012 Server using FreeTDS on OSX in the terminal when I pass the -P .
V-MBP:etc vashavoc$ tsql -S SERVER_IP -p PORT -U USER -P PASSWORD locale is "en_US.UTF-8" locale charset is "UTF-8" using default charset "UTF-8" Msg 18456 (severity 14, state 1) from SERVER_IP Line 1: "Login failed for user 'USER'." Error 20002 (severity 9): Adaptive Server connection failed There was a problem connecting to the server
If I leave out the -P and force it to prompt for input, I can type/paste it in and I can connect. (No there is no typo when I try using -P.)
V-MBP:etc vashavoc$ tsql -S SERVER_IP -p PORT -U USER Password: locale is "en_US.UTF-8" locale charset is "UTF-8" using default charset "UTF-8" 1>
Seems very odd it works when I omit the password from the connect string. FreeTDS seems installed OK.
V-MBP:sh vashavoc$ tsql -C Compile-time settings (established with the "configure" script) Version: freetds v0.95.80 freetds.conf directory: /usr/local/Cellar/freetds/0.95.80/etc MS db-lib source compatibility: no Sybase binary compatibility: no Thread safety: yes iconv library: yes TDS version: 7.1 iODBC: no unixodbc: no SSPI "trusted" logins: no Kerberos: no OpenSSL: yes GnuTLS: no
Tried TDSVER=X.X variants before the tsql string without any change.
tsql -LH SERVER_IP
Also tried to see if it would list back its instances using the -LH, doesn't respond and times out I presume.
Am I missing anything that could get this to work? It is a server setting that is preventing it?
