Hi Dan,
    It looks like the url you're using from the client isn't quite right.  For a client/server url you want the logical database name in the url after the port and not the path to the database.

    So a single server can support multilple databases.  What you'll want to try is something like


    instead of


    This too will create the db for you if it does not already exist.

I have a linux server running Redhat ES4 and have Derby installed. I can access the database at the server using the ij tool.
The server is on a lan with an ip address of I can start the Derby server using either the ip address and port 1527 or using and port 1527 and successfully ping it using the Derby tool on the linux machine.
However, I can't reach the linux server from a Windows XP machine on the lan running  the ClientDriver. I can reach the Apache web server on the
linux machine and ping the linux server from the Windows computer so I know the connection is there.
The Derby database on the linux server is installed at /usr/local/derby/database/apolloDB.  My code on the Windows client machine is as follows:
String driver = "org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver";
String dbURL = "jdbc:derby://";
java.util.Properties prop = new java.util.Properties();
My derby.properties file is in directory on the server /usr/local/derby/database
I get the message  at the client machine
'SQLException java.net.NoRouteToHostException: Error connection to server on port 1527 with message No route to host:connect.'
At the Windows client machine I used a windows utility to ping both the host and the port. I could successfully ping the Apache Webserver getting port 80, but
not the Derby server. Maybe because the Derby server requires a password when connecting from an external source, I don't know.
Anyone have any suggestions? I have run out of ideas..
