No, can't be sure but this is just the first line of defense which keeps out 99% of the people. We also lock down ODBC using Navigator and we use an exit point check (the Kisco product) to do a server side service level check to trap JDBC access as well. No individual user account is allow ODBC or JDBC connections and when we do allow it we create a special account that can only do ODBC/JDBC connections (no green-screen) and are restricted to one library that contains the files for that application

.. p.s. or remove the ODBC driver from their PC. We only install 5250
emulation on our users PCs

And you're SURE no user has installed the driver on their own??? :-)
