As I suggested in off-list email: please send in your configuration

In order for the client and server to make contact, the configurations
have to match.

The above error suggests that the client is trying to connect using
one or more methods (depending on what you have configured in the
client-config.ini) and then gives up either after hitting a timeout
or finding that it cannot open connections to the configured mxODBC
Connect Server(s).
