A common Connect dialog is available in both Sybase Central and Interactive SQL to let you connect to a database.
When you start Sybase Central, you need to open this dialog manually. When you start Interactive SQL, the dialog automatically appears; you can also make it appear by choosing SQL > Connect.
In Sybase Central, choose Connections > Connect with SQL Anywhere 10.
You press F11 to open the Connections menu.
You can make subsequent connections to a given database easier and faster using a connection profile.
In Interactive SQL, choose SQL > Connect.
Alternatively, you can press F11 to open the Connect dialog.
Once the Connect dialog appears, you must specify the connection parameters you need to connect. For example, you can connect to the sample database by choosing SQL Anywhere 10 Demo from the ODBC Data Source Name list on the Identification tab and then clicking OK.
At a command prompt, type dbconsole.
The Connect dialog appears.
