Unable to connect Sybase to PRTG



I followed the instructions in this kb: https://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/2053-how-can-i-monitor-other-sql-servers-through-ado-with-prtg

I downloaded the script and modified it for our environment. I then ran the script and it returned the number of items correctly with no issues. But when I add the custom sensor that uses this powershell script I just get "Could Not Establish Connection." I even tried it in a bat file and get the same result(works on desktop where PRTG is installed but doesn't work inside PRTG.) Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

The ADO sensor is already included "out of the box," within PRTG. Please try using the ADO sensor available within PRTG, seeing as the code has changed since.

When we use the default ADO sensor we get this error message:

"[Sybase][ODBC Driver]Could not load code page for requested charset"

This does not seem to be an issue within PRTG; please consult with your DB/SYS-Admin.
