I have just started using the Beta version (have license for 2.1). I have lately discovered that Toad (both the 2.1 and the latest beta) does not allows manage to connect.
I frequently connect over a vpn line as well as from the office and I know that they have recently changed the whole network infrastructure.
We use OpenClient 12.0 (at least that’s the sql.ini file being used) and I try to connect to our database which is listed as .company.com, 6060, urgent
I frequently get the message: Database Error: There is no server listening at ourserver.company.com:6060.
Then I open BMC SQL-Programmer Expert 18.5 and open the exact same connection as defined in the same sql.ini file and it connects immediately. This leads me to think that Toad handles the dns’s differently than SQL-Programmer does. Toad 2.1 simply tries for 15 seconds and then gives the message: “Client unable to establish connection”
This is the same for all my connections to dev, test and production environments.
The environments are Sybase ASE 15.0.3 to Sybase ASE 15.7 on Sun Solaris 10.
The windows host file on my work laptop is empty (default).
Since one application manages to connect fine where as the other doesn’t I am suspect that Toad handles the connection differently. Do Toad require IP-addresses and/or local dns translations?
Thanks in advance!
