Setting up iODBC is just a straight-forward as setting up
unixODBC. See e.g. this how-to:


These are few links to the mxODBC Zope DA documentation:


The mxODBC Zope DA allows you to select which ODBC manager
to use on Unix - depending on which are installed.

Since both managers provide more or less the same interface,
it's usually best to just install one of them and select
the "Platform Default" choice.

This results in mxODBC Zope DA
picking up the ODBC that's installed on the system and is more
portable in case you plan to move the connection object to
a different installation:
