connect jira to sql azure database


I have a virtual server setup in Azure and I am trying to install JIRA on it. During the setup process it asks me to connect to a database, which in my case is a SQL database in Azure on a different virtual server. The error I get is:

Error connecting to database

I/O Error: DB Server closed connection.

Database Type: Microsoft SQL Server


Port 1433

Database: JIRA2015



Schema: DBO

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thank You,
