Thanks for your answer, I've installed DB2 Runtime Clients V8.1 and
now I have the libdb2.so library, I've made the /sbin/ldconfig and
renamed libdb2.so to libdb2_36.so to match it with the not found
error, and it seems that the cli works properly, but another exception
has come:

Unhandled Exception: IBM.Data.DB2.DB2Exception: No error information

IBM.Data.DB2.DB2Connection:.ctor (string)

Could it be because the db2 version of the remote db is 7.x and the
db2 I'm using is 8.1??

Thanks for the help.
