ODBC connection failing

My ODBC was working perfectly and has now just stopped.

I have checked the MySQL Connector ODBC and the configuration settings are correct.

What else can I check?

Are you able to connect to the database using the ODBC test connection ?
If not check if there is any firewall blocking the port.
Is the database accessible locally where the it is hosted ?
Is your database user that you use to connect to the database allowed to connect from that particular IP address or any IP address ?
