Using Telnet to confirm communication with external server using SSL
Posted on 2010-09-23
Using Coldfusion 8 Enterprise on Windows 2008. I'm trying to connect to an instance of SQL Server 2008 through an encrypted connection but having no luck.
I'm trying to register a new Data Source in the Coldfusion administrator. The datasource if from a SQL Server 2008 box which only allows SSL connections.
I'm getting time out errors. So I tried to do away with the sql stuff and try to get as low level communication.
I'm trying to telnet into the SQL Server box but I'm getting this error msg: Could not open connection the host on port 1433: Connect failed.
If I have the servers info to connect via sql server login, how can I test this with telnet?
