This may or may not be your problem, depending if your getting variables or not.
My apologies, I misinterpreted what you meant. I have an external server host through Dallas, TX and I can connect to the DB just fine myself, but you're saying that this error is the result of a failed connection to the SQL? Or the entire server? Because the weird thing is that under the IPN history it said it sent the data to the page with a 200 response code and it states 200 means it was successful. So I'm kind of at a loss.
