Is port 8060 open on the server?
I'd try to test a connection to the server with another client tool like Navicat for PostgreSQL. If that fails as well, then it's likely to be something blocking 8060 inbound on the server OR that your outbound request on port 8060 is being blocked by a firewall on your PC.
Thanks for your reply. I was able to connect to the DB using port 8060 from the localhost. I will have access again tomorrow to the system and try connecting with a SQL editor. We just setup the server and no blocking has been configured yet nor am I blocking this port from my computer. I'll let you know how it works out.
Connecting via port 8060 on localhost doesn't exactly prove that port is accessible from the rest of the network?. It does at least prove the service is listening on that port, which is a start.
If you can ping the server from your workstation but cannot connect on port 8060, then it really comes down to a firewall preventing the request inbound (the server is refusing) or outbound (your pc firewall is not allowing it out).
I'd speak to a sysadmin regarding the blocking. While you might not have specifically configured it to be blocked on the server, this doesn't mean it's not blocked. Quite often non-standard ports are blocked out of the box. This may be the case for your desktop as well if you're on a corporate network.
