Consult the documentation for your driver for the correct form for your url. I think you are missing the name of the database (catalog/schema/etc) you want to connect to.

Hi Maximilan,
The syntax was ok, the problem was with the TCP/IP connection.It just had to be enabled and things worked fine after that.
Thanks
Bitz
