    Using the 4.0/4.1 importer for IPS to XenForo, I get the following error:

    The source database connection details are not correct: Connection refused

    I'm entering everything correctly, double checked, triple checked - including the directory path the the files

    The IPS is hosted on a different server than the forum I am merging it to.

    Any ideas?

    That's the issue.

    You will need to open up the server so you can connect to it, or move/copy the installation to the same server where XF is installed.

    If I do that, move the install on my server and do it... do I need to install it on an IPB? I've acquired the database, not the software license but I can upload the files to my server if need be.

    If you have the database and files (attachments, avatars), that's all the importer needs - you don't need to install the forum software.
