jdbc access to DB2

I tried to access db2 personal edition in a remote Win2000 machine using JDBC(net driver).
The sample code is below
java.sql.Connection ocon=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc b2:me2k1:JMXDB","userid","password");
me2k1 is the machine name and jmxdb is the database name.
The above code throws below exception [IBM][JDBC Driver] CLI0616E Error opening socket
All the DB2 services are running in db machine.
Should I specify the port number in the URL.If so how to find the port number of the database.
The same program runs perfectly in the machine where DB2 resides.
Thanks in advance for help
