What is a DSN?
DSN, which stands for data source name, is a method of connecting to a database via ASP (Active Server Page). DSN connections require ODBC, an open standard for API for accessing databases. ODBC handles requests and converts them into requests that the individual database systems understand.
What is a DSN-less connection?
A DSN-less connection is a method of connecting to a database without specifying a named data source. DSN-less connections donít require the creation of an ODBC DSN. Instead of relying on information stored in a file or in the system registry (as DSN connections do), DSN-less connections specify the driver name and all driver-specific information in the connection string.
How do I connect to my database?

connectivity links to use a healthy route which eliminates packet loss and
downtime. This "connectivity switching" actually happens frequently,
yet is completely invisible to our customers.
