I don't remember the details any more but also for V9 of SQLA you needed a specific EBF to get a database server which was compliant to Win7 and Win Server 2008.

So my advice is: upgrade, when you use an up-to-date OS you should also consider running an up-to-date db software.

SQL Anywhere 7 is not compatible with Windows 2008. Install SQL Anywhere 9 latest EBF to run the Database on 2008.

Windows Server 2008 comes with the firewall enabled for the LAN connection by default. We typically have to add an exception for dbsrvXX.exe in order to use an ODBC connection.
