The Gateway is a separately licensed product, but you've got to download
the entire enterprise cd set for Windows to find the software.
Heterogeneous services for HP-UX is one item that I have not been able
to get working.  I would not waste my time on it.  The gateway is $5K
per server that it's installed on, if my memory is working right.  Takes
about 2 hours to get installed & running & then using a Microsoft
utility you can tie in all the sql server databases you want.

Subject: Oracle Transparent Gateway

Is the Oracle Transparent Gateway a licensable product? We have a
requirement to access the SQL Server from the Oracle using the DB link
or Synonyms of the SQL Server object in the Oracle using the dblink. 
In the Heterogeneous connectivity document, it says either you could use
the Generic connectivity or the Transparent Gateway. The transparent
gateway can use the SQL Server database as a another Oracle database so
we could use the Database link. How about the Generic connectivity? I
wasn't clear that the Generic connectivity has the same feature of using
the db link. Also, Does Oracle support the SQL Server connectivity from
the Unix (HP-UX)?
