cant connect to remote SQL server database

cant connect to remote SQL server database

cant connect to remote SQL server database

hi experts,
i have a problem ....
i m writing a java code to connect to the sqlserver runnign in a machine in the same domain,
i m using the sql-jdbc driver for that ....which comes as sqljdbc.jar,
the code follows:
private String driverName = "com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver";
private String databaseURL = "jdbc:sqlserver://;databaseName=MyPrivateDB";
private String username = "sa";
private String password = "";
con = DriverManager.getConnection(databaseURL,username,password);

now the last line of the code throws an error:
 com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: The TCP/IP connection to the host  has failed. java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect


the same code runs successfully, when i use JDBC-ODBC bridge driver to connect  

why so?

RE: cant connect to remote SQL server database

You should use the Java forum for this kind of issues.

Maybe the answer is that you java a ODBC data source defined but not a jdbc one.


RE: cant connect to remote SQL server database

Is there any firewall working?

It seems to me that the Connection is blocked.
