For installing that ruby-oci8 gem u need
1. instantclient-basic
2. instantclient-sdk
3. u need to export LD_LIBRARY_PATH of that path
4. then run bundle install

My Ruby on Rails App needs to connect to a ODBC Datasource that has SSL only enabled.

Can somebody give me an example of connecting to a ODBC Source with SSL?

I constantly get SSL required error. I don't see the option of passing SSL Certificates via UnixODBC. May be something I am missing.

I'm wonder how most people securely connect to a Postgres database on a server separate from the app server.

The ActiveRecord docs for a MySQL connection have explicit SSL options, whereas with Postgres it seems one would pass SSL options as documented for libpq.

However a quick Googling returns SO threads with suggestions to use SSH tunnels. Which I guess could be managed with something like AutoSSH.

I'd love to hear from others. Is one method faster than the other, or easier to maintain?
