Detect what prevent mysql connection

Post by oleengvoll » Tue 11 Mar 2014 18:05

We are using dotConnect for MySQL. We are having some problem with computers behind restricted router setup. I wonder if it is possible to detect what is (eventually) preventing mysql-connection to connect to sql-server? If it is port disabling, antivirus functions or what. If we know the reason in each problem case, it is much easier to help the customer.
BTW: We connect through port 8080 because 3006 is often restricted.
Thanx. Ole

Please provide us the message and stack trace of the exception.

Also, if you cannot connect to the remote server because of the blocked port, you can use Tunneling to bypass the blocking. For more information, please refer to ... eling.html
