Has anyone succeded in getting it to work? I get as far as it starting but cannot connect:

sle12sql2017:/opt/mssql/lib # sqlcmd -S 1.1.1.1 -U sa -P *******
Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server : TCP Provider: Error code 0x2746.
Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server : Client unable to establish connection.

Other info on the web hint to openssl incompatibilities and suggest installing an older version, but it does not help. Above command CAN connet to other SQL Servers running on other machines.
