No one is maintaining the Mono.Data.TdsClient.
Mono.Data.SybaseClient might be better.  Both of these
including System.Data.SqlClient use Mono.Data.Tds
which implements the TDS protocol.

However, your database is old, so it may not work.  
Could be something with unicode encoding or language
character set problems.   

What do you mean it does not work?  connecting,
selecting data, what?  How are you connecting?  Are
you using a specific port number or not?  The provider
may not be defaulting the TCP/IP port you expect.

It helps to provide a stack trace.  Error messages. 
Connection string info.  Of course, you can rename any
hostname, ip address, user id, and password info.
