Is there a way of testing AcuXDBC's connection with AcuXDBC Server without using a 3rd party application?
This is possible. On the client machine open a command prompt and navigate to the AcuGT\bin directory. Type:
odbcsql.bat -d "DSN-NAME"
where DSN-NAME is the name specified for the dsn in the Data Source Administrator.
This directly queries AcuXDBC Server that the DSN-NAME points to. Assuming that the sample data was used during the creation of the system catalog, at the odbcsql prompt type in a query to the database:
select * from pets;
This should return all of the rows from the sample pets table.
