You say randomly...so sometimes you're able to make this database connection?
Possibilites include -
Network is down or unreachable
The server is down
The database is down
Thank you for your answer.
Yes, I can connect it sometimes. It is unreliable coz don't know when it is going to happen.
I connected via VPN, after I success connect to the VPN sever it assigned a IP address to my laptop, I think it means I connected internet fine?
As I mentioned earlier, my colleague has the same set up as mine, but he didn't have any problem to use the database whether he is in office or at home.
So I'm guessing, I need adjust the setting of my laptop some how. Any idea what I could do?
sounds like networking
when it doesn't work, see if you can ping the hostname or IP address for the DB
What do you mean by ping the hostname?
Thank you. I will try it when next time the issue occurs.
Yes. That's the problem, I tried it. when it's happening, I reconnect to the sever and it is working. Thanks a lot.
