Unable to Connect to Amazon RedShift

This error shows me like below,


We encountered an error while trying to connect


Details: "ODBC: ERROR [08S01] [Microsoft][Amazon Redshift] (10) Error occurred while trying to connect: [SQLState 08S01] could not connect to server: Connection timed out (0x0000274C/10060)
Is the server running on host "" ( and accepting
TCP/IP connections on port 5439?



It is connecting sometimes and it is saying like this sometimes, Even if it is connected it's not showing my tables in redshift. I don;t know whether this is fully developed a plug-in or still in Development stage.

Hi @rmandadapu,


Amazon Redshift connector should be generally available since 2017-June release. See Amazon Redshift connector is now generally available


Based on my research, the could be a network issues. Here is the similar thread for your reference. Smiley Happy 

After a few days of testing, we have found that these have been network issues for within the office - we have some serious IP issues ongoing and as a result, switching the datasource did not help. I even created a new pbix file to use MYSQL database but refresh did not go through, whereas at home, i was able to run it without a hitch. 


I have now resolved this by actually switching out from a desktop to a windows server on aws, and a couple of days in and the refresh runs well and takes less one third the time is used to - barring some import errors while publishing which persisted last night, i think this solution is working well

Attempt to connect once then go to File==>Options and Setting ==>Data Source Settings select the Redshift connection then click Edit Permissions Change uncheck the encryption and change the privacy level to Public

Hi @cindymao


I know this is an old thread, but did the suggested solution fix your issue? 


I'm also experiencing the same and the suggestion didn't work for me.

I please wanted to find out if you managed to connect? 

Editing permisions didn't work out for me.
