open source linux -> windows database connectivity?

    I am trying to read a Pervasive database on a Windows machine from a
    Python script on a Linux machine.

    I understand that this can be done with a proprietary ODBC-to-ODBC
    bridge called mxODBC or Easysoft OOB.

    Is there anyway to do this with existing free/ open source tools?

    Thanks in advance for any tips.

    Yeah, but don't I need the server part to make the connection?

    Would it be possible to use Jython and the Pervasive JDBC driver for
    this?

    Woo-hoo! Forget ODBC. Got this working with Jython and JDBC drivers!
