I am using SQL Server 2008 R2 with named instance (listening to port 1433). With all my other applications I am happily able to connect to this database without any problem. But when I am trying to connect the same database through DBVisualizer, I am getting below error.
An error occurred while establishing the connection:
Network error IOException: Connection refused: connect
SQL State: 08S01
For more information, please note that I am using "SQL Server (jTDS) driver".
As I am able to connect successfully through my other applications, I am sure that my connection parameters, network settings, firewall setting etc. are configured correctly. Only in case of DBVisualizer there is a problem. Please also note that I have tried multiple versions of DBVis starting from 6.0.xx to 9.1.xx but with same result.
I am not able to understand what I am missing out. Please help me with this. I have sent same query through mail also to the support team but still I don't have any solution.
Thanks and Regards,
