I'm getting the following exception when attempting to connect to SQL Server 2005 using Microsoft's new JDBC driver:
com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: The TCP/IP connection to the hostÃÂ has failed. java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect
The help docs suggest checking connectivity using telnet. So attempting to connect via telnet to 127.0.0.1:1433 generates:
Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed.
So I try to start telnet:
net start telnet
I get the following error message:
The service cannot be started either because it is disabled or because it has no enables devices associated with it.
Can anyone help?
