Difficulty to connect to MySQL database

Dear all,

I have difficulties to connect to a MySQL database via a VPN connection.
My setup is as follow:

Windows XP
KNIME 2.1.2
Cisco VPN Client 4.0.4
Open Office 3.2.0

Using OpenOffice Base I have no difficulties to connect to the MySQL database through the VPN connection using the same mysql-connector.

Using Knime w/o the VPN connector (at the remote site) the connection is established and one can retrieve information.

The message is:
WARN Database Reader java.sql.SQLException: java.util.concurrent.TimeoutException

Any idea ?

Thank you very much in advance for any input

Best regards,


Hi Jürgen, Please try to increase the database timeout. Best, Thomas

Thank you very much. It was THE hint…
So, KNIME is connected.

Thank you once again.
