AcuSQL connection to MySQL on the same server

Hi, I would like to ask whether it is necessary to install unixODBC on my HP-UX server if I want it to connect to the MySQL which is also installed inside the same server. If it is not necessary to install the unixODBC, can anyone please guide me on how to configure the connection of MySQL to AcuSQL? Thank you very much and sorry for the hassle.
