Connecting to MS SQL server with MySQL


Hi.

Is it possible to connect to a Microsoft SQL Server with the MySQL client running on Linux?

When I try the following:

Code:
$mysql -u administrator -h [HOST_IP] --port 1433
I get the following response after about 30 seconds:

Code:
ERROR 2013: Lost connection to MySQL server during query
Help!!

I wouldn't imagine this is possible, I mean, they are entirely different products so I don't see why the client from MySQL would be able to "speak" to MS SQL server?
