connecting via ODBC problem

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm trying to connect my FM Pro 8.5 to ASP.NET web application.

Unlike other posts who were not able to see the FM Client driver, I can see the FM driver. My problem is with the DataDirect SequeLink for ODBC setup.

I go to the Data Source, try to add System DSN, select the driver. all is fine up until now.

Knowing that the database is on my machine, I add the following:

Data Source Name: the name of my DB

SequeLink Server Host:

SequeLink Server Port: 2399

but when I get to the Server Data Source, no matter what I add the connection fails and gives this message:

[DataDirect][ODBC SequeLink Client]TCP/IP error,connection refused.

Can somebody please help me with this; I'm a student and just learning FM and I've been working on this for quite some time now. So any help would be much appreciated!!
