Connecting Windows to the AS/400

I am having trouble connecting my Windows machine to AS/400 DB2 database using Microsoft ODBC drivers. Are there any issues I need to be aware of?

As far as I know there are ODBC drivers for the AS/400 but none of them are by Microsoft (except maybe to snd server).

An alternative driver can be for example client access ODBC driver (free), many vendors have their own versions (boss, wrq).

If you use Client Access driver and have connection problems check out IBM's ODBC Troubleshooting guide.
