One one of our servers we have a Java program that runs and this program then writes new data
to the MySQL server that is on that machine.

connection via server2.anoox.com tried an

Do you have any suggestions how to fix this?

Or is there a Java forum here to which I should be posting this question.

I thank you before hand.
