JDBC connection timeout Topic by ecarr6 13 Oct 2015

The error message is attached below.  The main issue is that I have existing code that's working locally (surprise!) but when deployed to a different machine, I'm getting these connection timeouts.  Ping is good from the same client, but I acknowledge that firewall settings may be an issue, still.  Does anyone here have any thoughts about what may be at issue?
