    I am working on apllication, and I am trying to connect to remote Sybase server using DataDirect Connect ADO.NET 4.2. I need to use a web.config file to connect to that server with entity framework.

    <add name="ConnectionName" connectionString="Database Name=Name;Host=HostName;Port=5000;User ID=userName" providerName="ddtek.sybase.entity" />

    <provider invariantName="ddtek.sybase.entity" type="DDTek.Sybase.Entity.SybaseEntitySettings, DDTek.Sybase.Entity, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c84cd5c63851e072"/>


    But I didnt manage to make it work.

    Any Help about this configuration, Thank you in Advance.

    What is the error message you're seeing?

    What version of Entity Framework are you working with? This article suggests EF 6.0 is not supported with Sybase as of Sept 2017, and you should check with Progress on the latest status.

    First of all thank you for the reply.

    Unfortunately I am working with Entity Framework 6.0 so I guess this is a confirmation that I cant use the DataDirect Sybase Provider with EF06.

    So, does anyone have any information if Sybase will be supported in the future?
