    Hi Kavitha,

    1- Install JRE
    2- Copy PDI files to folder and ...
    3- Launch (sppon.bat in windows, spoon.ssh in nix)

    Use the dialog to create a new connection and then a repository based to this connection.

    If you face pb, please report the error.

    PS: In docs folder (kettle install/docs) you will many docs.

    Looking at your crosspost at

    You just don't have permission to connect (firewall, database rights, ...). Try whether you can access the database from where you run spoon using the tools of the database itself.
