Remote connection to the database with ODBC driver fails

Remote connection to the database with ODBC driver fails


I can connect to the database with an ODBC connection on the server using a remote connection string: server_name:Database_alias. There is a problem connecting to the database from a remote machine using the same connection string and credentials. The Test connection button always fails.

From the remote machine a Delphi application can connect to the database using the same connection string and credentials (via the GDS32.dll).

OS = Windows Server 2003 R2 standard edition Service Pack 2

Hardware = Intel Xeon (Virtual Machine)

Any suggestions about possible cause?
