The latest Oracle drivers are here: http://www.oracle.com/support/catagories/html/drivers.html

Subject: update on oracle odbc for authentix

Hi Kevin,

I found out that the Miscrosoft ODBC drivers for Oracle work much better than the Oracle ODBC drivers. And also I found out that if I used the Oracle ODBC drivers for AuthentiX to log into Oracle and then used the MS Oracle drivers in ASP pages within the AuthentiX protected site it would crash/freeze IIS. The solution has been to modify all my ODBC calls to Oracle so that they use the latest Microsoft ODBC for Oracle drivers (mdac 2.0 drivers) instead of the Oracle ODBC drivers. The MS ODBC drivers for Oracle are also easier to use/install than the Oracle ones.

I thought you would be interested to know and that you should update your
FAQ.
regards,
Stephan.
Thanks Stephan!
