pypyodbc.Error: (u'IM002', u'[IM002] [unixODBC][Driver Manag

Hello all, Thank you for seeing this. Obviously I am new here. I get the following error when I run the code. Where am I going wrong?

I am trying to connect to a SQL Server database on windows machine from a linux machine. I am running the script on Linux box.

pypyodbc.Error: (u'IM002', u'[IM002] [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Data source name not found, and no default driver specified')

Code: Select all
#!/usr/bin/env python

import pypyodbc

db_info = {
   "server" : "servername",
   "database" : "databasename",
   "user" : "sqlusername",
   "password" : "sqlpassword"

connection_string = "DRIVER={FreeTDS};" + "SERVER={0[server]};UID={0[user]};PWD={0[password]};DATABASE={0[database]}".format(db_info)
#connection_string = "DRIVER={FreeTDS};" + "SERVER={0[server]};UID={0[user]};PWD={0[password]};DATABASE={0[database]}".format(db_info)

print connection_string
connection = pypyodbc.connect(connection_string)

query = "SELECT TOP 50 columnname FROM tablename"

cursor = connection.cursor()


for columnname in cursor.description:
   print column_name

Thanks for looking! Any help appreciated.
