I'm fairly new to website design and decided to try use met objects 1and1 edition after I took out a windows web hosting package with 1and1

I've created a my SQL server and MySQL db and used a db connector in net objects to connect to this and created a record set. I've done this manually as 1and1 don't allow remote connections and verified the settings a few times now. No error message displayed and I've set up a layout region and connected it to text boxes and inserted the appropriate field. When I've published the site the page loads up and a small white box appears with a wait timer where the layout region with DS connection should be and eventually disappears displaying nothing at all

I've been stumped for weeks and would appreciate some help

I have java version 1.7, running net object 1and1 edition on window 8 in admin mode
