ODBC to SQL server on different subnet


I'm attempting to create an ODBC connection to a SQL server that is on a different subnet (connected via IPSec tunnel), but nothing I've seen suggested is working.

I have ODBC Driver 18 for SQL Server installed on the client, and as stated by many, the SQL server pool dropdown is empty.

I've tried manually entering the servername\instance and IP\instance, no luck.

I know the credentials I'm using are correct.

The error being thrown when I try to select the default database:

I have no idea what to do with this...I don't run into this issue on any clients that are on the same subnet.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Thank you...setting the encryption to 'optional' worked!
