Are you trying to connection to a network server or a personal server? Show us an example of your connection string.

Try the network server instead of the personal server, and add Host, ServerName (Server), and DatabaseName (DBN) parameters to your connection string.

Thank you very much. The problem came from connection string; I just put parameters you advise and it works. ($conn = sqlanywhere_connect( "UID=fts;PWD=fts;ENG=GIACSRV10;CommLinks=tcpip" ));

Once more thank thank you
