How to connect to Postgres managed database accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?

I’ve have been trying setup a Scalelite load balancer. The load balancer connects to an external Postgres database. I have setup the managed database, made incoming traffic open to all. The server and the managed database are in the same VPC, N1. No matter what I do I get the error below when I run:

connection timed out is the server running running on host "" and accepting 	TCP/IP connections on port 5432?

Help will be really appreciated.

Hi there @elvisron,

The Managed Postgresql databases run on non-standard ports, you should not use the 5432 port but instead use the port which is specified in your Managed database settings.

I believe that the port which you should use is 25060.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
