Hi FME Team. I am using the same login and password for connecting to PostSQL database to complete the training module, and I keep getting connecting errors every time I try to run sample data, do you know how to remove that error?

I've just checked and the database is working for me, so it's not down (at least not right now). It's likely there's a firewall preventing you access. Which errors specifically are you getting?

I can also confirm the connection using those details - I used PGAdmin to connect


Hello @benjaminj​, I can also confirm I can access the database right now. As @Hans van der Maarel​ said, it's most likely a firewall or other network issue preventing access. I'd contact your IT department or review your firewall settings. If you are using a VPN, I'd recommend trying to connect without a VPN as well; that is sometimes the culprit.
