Kinetic Read-Only Database and ODBC

I’m using ODBC 32-bit,
Have the server as, XXXXX
For How should SQL Server verify the authenticity of the login ID? I have With SQL Server Authentication using a login ID and password entered by the user.

the database name as SaaSXXX1_XXXXX

When I click Finish I get this
Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server Version 17.05.0001

Data Source Name: Kinetic
Data Source Description:
Server:, XXXXX
Use Integrated Security: No
Database: SaaSXXX1_XXXXX
Language: (Default)
Data Encryption: No
Trust Server Certificate: No
Multiple Active Result Sets(MARS): No
Mirror Server:
Translate Character Data: Yes
Log Long Running Queries: No
Log Driver Statistics: No
Use Regional Settings: No
Use ANSI Quoted Identifiers: Yes
Use ANSI Null, Paddings and Warnings: Yes

And when I click Test Data Source and get the following.

Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server Version 17.05.0001

Running connectivity tests…

Attempting connection
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server]TCP Provider: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server]Communication link failure


I really would like to be able to connect to this via ODBC since we have a label printing program that uses an ODBC connection to get the UPC from the Part Table when we print a Part Label.

we can access the database using the Azure Data Studio.

Any thoughts?

I think something was not working correctly with the read only databases earlier today then. B/c I was also trying to log into our using an ODBC connection and was getting that same error. I just retried and it Connected! I’m using the ODBC Driver 18. Might want to give it another shot and see what you get.
