No need for a Linux ODBC connector. If you install the Oracle ODBC client stuff on your Windows machine, it should talk to your Oracle7 database without issue over the network.

I'm not sure if the MS ODBC drivers for Oracle implement SQL*Net v1 (used for Oracle7) but I'm pretty sure the Oracle clients maintain backward compatibility. So you might need to use the Oracle drivers, but that would be the only gotcha.

Ole -

I'm kind of new to this, but...I'm connecting to Oracle using a Windows (2000, not NT) box but rather than connect directly from Zope, I set up an ODBC connection to the Oracle database on my Windows box using the Microsoft Oracle drivers and then use the ODBC connection from Zope.  Then you can use an ODBC connection from Linux rather than an Oracle one.  Of course this assumes there is a Linux ODBC adapter (I'm running Zope under Windows)
