Error Message ".....TCP/IP error, connection Refused" in ColdFusion

I am getting the following error:

Internal Error - Query Failed: [Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver]TCP/IP error, connection refused.

This happens when trying to access a ColdFusion program which is run with java classes.  The program queries data from, and inputs into, an Informix (Standard Engine version 7.15) database on an HPUX server.  The ColdFusion MX is on a Windows 2000 server and runs on IIS 5.0.

If you don't specify a user, IIS uses the buildin account <machinename>_iusr to access the sources specified. If so, did you gave account rights to the database?

Otherwise, post your code.

Would you be so kind respond to the suggestions?

My apologies for not responding to the suggestion.  I did not get an email that there was a response.  Our email has been flaky for the last month.  Again I apologize.

The problem ended up being that there was a daemon that had just quit running.  It was on the unix server where the informix database is.  Once it was restarted everything worked fine.

Again, my apologies.  I also had a very hard time trying to find my open questions here on experts-exchange.  It would be nice if there was a direct link to them right after logging in.
