error updating data source credentials


when I try to fill in credentials of a data source(PostgreSQL) at saving there is an error:

Data source credentials could not be updated: 'An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions'


Login / password is correct, Power BI Desktop is updating data without errors. The exchange is configured through a personal gateway, the latest updates  been installed. Please, tell me how to fix this error?



@v-lili6-msft  hi, thanks, through the gateway manager (standard gateway ) it worked

hi @Question 

Try to remove the datasource and readd the PostgreSQL datasource in the manage gateway.
or if you could use standard gateway version instead of personal version and try it again.

We use a personal gateway, tried to delete the data set and republish it, thereby updating the data source, did not help the error remained.
