Problem with MSSQL SPRINTA 2000 JDBC Driver

I have installed MQ SQL Server 2000 on my laptop and trying to use
SPRINTA 2000 JDBC Driver (inetmssql.jar) to connect to the local db. I
wrote a sample Java app to test the connection and I get the following
error trace,

DriverManager.initialize: jdbc.drivers = null
JDBC DriverManager initialized
SQLException: SQLState(08S01)
{sql7=true, port=1433, user=sa, url=jdbc:inetdae7:US0-WP01:1433,
password=passMe, host=US0-WP01}
getConnection failed: com.inet.tds.SQLException: Connection refused:
com.inet.tds.SQLException: Connection refused: connect Connection refused: connect

I tried searching the web and product doc. Nothing seems to help me.
Has anyone come across similiar problems? Any pointers will be
appreciated also.

Why not use the JDBC driver that comes from Micro$oft in fact its their DB that you are using.It should complement. Try downloading it here.


With great power comes great responsibility.

"Dallas Cowboy",

We're pleased to have you here with us on the Ranch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

"Connection refused" means that the database server actively refused the connections, which usually means that nothing is listening on the specified port. Are you sure that your SQL server is listening on port 1433? If so, are you positive that it is up and running?
