Now I need to define stuff. Is there a Control Panel or something?
  AseConnection myConn = new AseConnection();
        // NO idea how to set conn string up
        try
        {
            string str = "Server=sybserver;Port=5000;uid=MyUserID;pwd=MyP@$$word"; // ??
            myConn.ConnectionString = str;
            myConn.Open();

Sorry but Sybase is dead, why would you want students to use that?

It's called SAP ASE these days. 
I don't use it myself but SqlServer, MySql, Excel (and Access..) using ADO.NET.  The code is very generic and porting is very easy.
..
Anyways, I just need to know how to set the values in the connection string. I expect a sql.ini or control panel or something.

 string str = "Data Source='" + System.Net.Dns.GetHostName() + "';Port='5000';UID='sa';PWD='';Database='pubs2';";
Last question how to start ASE on Window??!! Exciting.

Qualification: Sybase as a company is gone, but SAP has the database.
