Subj:   Perl DBD and encrypted logins...

Greetings Teradata Forum,

We currently have some dynamic web content which uses DBD-Teradata-1.20 for Teradata connectivity. Our Teradata database was recently upgraded to version

Now perl connections via DBD::Teradata result in the following error messages:

     Deprecated logons are not allowed by administrator.
     Upgrade client software to latest version.

Interestingly, the DBD::Teradata 1.20 release notes indicate encrypted logon support was added circa Sept 2004.

I was wondering if anyone has used this feature, or might be able to point me to some information on how to use it?

I saw posting:


but am reluctant to switch to ODBC on Unix (Sun Solaris).

If I had to guess how to use encrypted logins, I might guess that I might be able to Blowfish encrypt either/both of the username/password actual parameters to the DBI::connect() call, but have no idea what key to use (I'd guess either the username/password). Maybe I should give this a try this since there are only 4 permutations...

In closing, any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for reading.
