I have a puzzling situation. I've been using the TeradataR package in R to connect to my company's teradata databases for a while now, but I can't seem to figure out why I can't connect remotely. I thought when I originally started using teradataR, I could connect remotely, but I can't any more.
It seems that if I'm at work, logged in through our company's authenticated network (which requires my LDAP username and password), I have no problem connecting, but if I'm at home, I boot up my VPN and can access any other restricted site for my company, but I can't connect to teradata.
I tried including my domain in my username
tdConnection <- dbConnect(drv, st,user = "domain\username" , password = "password")
But that doesn't seem to help at all. I continue to only get the error code below:
Is there something I'm missing in the connection process that needs additional information?
