DB2 Connect question - IBM DB2

In order to connect from a PC (Win 2K) to a Mainframe DB2 database (7.x) through DB2 Connect (7.2) that is running on a AIX box, what DB2 s/w and of what version do I need to install on my PC ? Can I use Runtime client or App Development client of 7.2 ? I tried connecting from a 8.1 runtime client but I got a 'version mis-match' error. I have read somewhere that I need to use DB2 CAE but I am not sure of what it is ? - Thanks...

    Default DB2 Connect question

    In order to connect from a PC (Win 2K) to a Mainframe DB2 database (7.x)
    through DB2 Connect (7.2) that is running
    on a AIX box, what DB2 s/w and of what version do I need to install on my
    PC ? Can I use Runtime client
    or App Development client of 7.2 ? I tried connecting from a 8.1 runtime
    client but I got a 'version mis-match' error.
    I have read somewhere that I need to use DB2 CAE but I am not sure of what
    it is ?

    - Thanks

    You need the runtime client, the Administration Client, or the App Development
    client ... preferably at the 7.2 level. "CAE" is an old name for the clients.

    IIRC, you can be running one release higher or lower of the db2/connect
    client than what's on your mainframe. So you can be running either the
    version 7 or 8 client (if there is a version 8 client yet - I haven't
    looked lately). From there, install all the service packs. For version 7,
    that will take you to 7.2 of the client. *

    Not sure where you're getting this from, but the release of the client has
    nothing to do with the release of DB2 on the mainframe. You could conceivably be
    running a V8 client with V8 DB2 Connect against a V6 or V7 DB2 on the mainframe
    .... and if it were supported ... potentially a V5 DB2 on the mainframe.

    The OP was talking about versions of DB2/connect vs. DB2 on zOS, and
    there's a doented window of compatible and supported releases. *

    Can you provide the reference that you speak of? I'd like to understand the correct
    information if I am wrong.
