I installed SQuirreL SQL Client Version 3.4.0 on a new Win7 PC late last week. I set up MS's SQL Server driver and IBM's JTOpen DB2 driver. I am getting a "Connect timed out" error trying to connect to any DB. I've tried two different Windows servers (SQL Server 2005 & 2008) and an IBM Power7.
I ran SQuirreL 3.2.1 on my WinXp machine and it worked fine.
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
"Did your new PC come with any preinstalled security software? Third party firewall blocking outbound ports?"
Both machines are running our Trend Micro corporate anti-virus and Windows Firewall. AFAIK, there are no other security programs running. I discovered that my IBM Eclipse-based IDE has a SQL client, and I'm able to connect to DB2 thru it using the IBM JDBC driver.
