I'm new to TeraData data access. I have downloaded the latest 188.8.131.52 drivers. I have Teradata v13.0 running on the server. After installing the driver, I'm connecting from server explorer of Visual studio 2010. I have supplied the Server name, database to connect, user id, password, port number that is required for connecting to teradata. I have also set the Mechanism as default for connecting. After doing all these I get an error saying that “[Socket Transport]  Transport error receiving data"
Can some one help in this regard.
It most likely means that you are connecting to wrong server (not Teradata Database); check the "Data Source" and "Port Number".
