We have a fairly large cPanel/WHM system at our co-location center that serves the public with several web sites using Joomla, vBulletin and other open source systems. Our enterprise system is on our main campus and the two systems have a dedicated VPN connection between them. We have a subnet of 10.100.100.nnn on the main campus and 10.200.200.nnn at the co-location center. Several applications including vBulletin need access to information on the enterprise mssql system. I got the ODBC driver from MySQL to connect the two database systems together. The problem I have run into is that I cannot get the ODBC driver to connect to the MySQL system. The ODBC driver installed easily but when I try to configure the system DSN on the Windows system I get 10060 error code that it could not get a connection to the remote system. When I dig into the port assignment interfaces, etc. I am confused by the eth1:cpn interfaces. MySQL is listening on 0.0.0.0 which I thought meant it would see the request coming in. I created an account with all privileges, which I am using to make the connection and I listed the 10.100.100.15 address of my MSSQL server in WHM. The ip address 10.200.200.19 is on eth1:cp3 and I use it in the connection. I have tried lots of variation on the ip addresses but I always get the same error message. Is anyone familiar with what might cause this problem? If you can help but need more information please ask. We own all these systems and I have full access to everything but I am about 350 miles away and use Putty or WHM to work on the cPanel/WHM system. I have a vpn connection to the other system.
