I am using Mac OS X 10.9.4 and Trying to connect to a MS SQL Server 2008. I ping the server and the port from terminal everything is ok. However, when I test the connection from DBVisualizer (ping server button) I get the following message:
"The ping attempt timed out. Please verify that you have
specified a correct hostname and port number."
Please help, thanks in advance.
