[ODBC SQL Server Driver][Named Pipes] Access denied

I have a VB program to update a distant SQL Server database. The database is located at my web host, MaximumASP.

It works fine on my computer and several others around, but on machines in another network I get the following error when trying to open the connection:

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Named Pipes]Access
denied.

Here's the very simple code for opening the connection:
 
  strConnString = "DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=maxsql002.maximumasp.com;UID=uid;PWD=pwd;"  
  Set db = New Connection
  db.ConnectionString = strConnString
  db.CursorLocation = adUseClient
  db.Open


It's probably some configuration issues with the second network, but I really don't know where to look...

Any ideas?

check your odbc datasources on the offending machines... i'm guessing you do not have the entry for maxsql002...

maxsql002.maximumasp.com is not a DSN, it's the adress of the SQL Server...

does it work if you use the ip address of the server instead?

try this instead:
"DRIVER=SQL Server;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;SERVER=216.26.160.7;UID=uid;PWD=pwd;"

the Network Library settings specifies to use tcp/ip instead of named pipes

Goto Client Network utilities and change the prtocol type from Named Pipes to TCP/IP.

faxx: rather than having to do what rpappu suggests on each of the client machines, you can just use the connection string i showed above which does the same thing.

bobbit31Commented:
ok, if that's not working, you might want to make sure you have the proper files on the client machines...

NETLIB     DBNSSPXN.DLL     spx
     DBNMPNTW.DLL     named pipes
     DBMSRPCN.DLL     multiprotocol
     DBMSSOCN.DLL     windows sockets

these should be in MDAC 2.1 or 2.5 whichever one you are using... be sure to include this in your install package

Gives me the following errer

[Microsoft][Gestionnaire de pilotes ODBC] Source de donnees non trouvee et nom de pilote non specifie

which means somethings like "data source not found and driver not specified"

it seems as though you do not have mdac installed on the offending machines.  are you using the package and deployment wizard to create your install package?

Yes, I'm using the package and deployment wizard...

bobbit31Commented:
are you including mdac_typ.exe in your install?

under project/references, select microsoft data access components 2.5

re-package your app and then re-install... it should install mdac first and then it will install your app.

hopefully that should do the trick.

good luck!
