[DB-SIG] client requirements for informix module

this is not a python-specific question but i hope someone can give me a
hand.  i've used the oracledb module with great success in the past.  now i
have to access a remote informix database.  both client and informix
servers are solaris.  

what client-side software needs to be installed to use the informix module?
 i assume it is their equivalent of oracle's sqlnet.  what is it called?
having never dealt with informix before i'm at a bit of a loss.  to make
matters worse i must communicate the requirements via a non-technical
project manager to have the installation work done by a quasi-hostile
sysadmin.  thus, i need to be as precise and specific as possible.

any help is greatly appreciated.
