Connection can't be established. Frustration: I've just installed the 4.5 upgrade over my 4.0, and have lost access to my RDS server from within Studio. I get the error "The connection to the server cannot be established". I can access the CF Administrator with no problem. Can someone suggest what the problem might be? -- Frank Marion Loofah Communications frank at loofahcom.com http://www.loofahcom.com --------------------------------------- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of TheList go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
