Question
Dear Sir,

ping is working fine but telnet <db ip> 3306 not working,
It is showing "Connecting to <db ip>... could not open connection to the host, on port 3306 : connect failed

Answer
If both the DB server and client server are on same network segment, then this could mean that a firewall is enabled on your DB server. Please make sure that you either stop the firewall or allow port 3306 to send and receive connections.

If both are on different segments or if the connections are routed through a firewall, the network admin will be able to fix this issue.
