Connecting to a Postgres SQL Database Error

When connecting to a PostgresSQL database, I get the following error: 

 

Details: "An error happened while reading data from the provider: 'A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond'"

 

Here are the values I put in the connector widget: 

Server: acton1-act-8765.aivencloud.com

Database: defaultdb

 

Here are the connection details from my server: 

Database Name: defaultdb
Host: acton1-act-8765.aivencloud.com
Port: 18963
User: avnadmin


What am I doing wrong here? 

 

Thank you and have a great day!

@amitchandak - thank you! The ODBC connector solved this for me in your post. Much appreciated.
