Installing 4 workstations on a seperate Network but cannot
establish a DSN connection to the SQL Server. Receiving the following errors:

Connection failed:
SQLState: '01000'
SQL Server Error: 11001
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP/IP Sockets]ConnectionOpen(Connect()).
Connection failed:
SQLState: '08001'
SQL Server Error: 6
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP/IP Sockets]Specified SQL server not found.

Already updated MDAC to latest version.
We can ping the SQL Server and telnet to
port 1433 (SQL) without any problems. This confirms network connectivity and port filtering is not an issue.

Have you tried a different protocol than TCP/IP?  Have you tried to ping both the server name and the IP address?  have you tried to connect with both IP and name?

Problem resolved! Were finally able to connect with IP address instead of SQL Server Name. Apparently, technician was mistyping IP.

Yes, sometimes name resolution doesn't work correctly and the IP address will....

Grade of C?  I would have rather had you close the question........You need to review the guides for grading questions too.

My only objection would be I responded with "Have you tried to ping both the server name and the IP address?  have you tried to connect with both IP and name? " and the answer that he came up with "himself" was "Were finally able to connect with IP address instead of SQL Server Name. Apparently, technician was mistyping IP"


I would say I at least pointed him in the right direction.....

My only comment here is that the this issue was resolved before I even knew there was a post. So you didn't point anyone in the right direction, even though it might have if I would have read it. The question was being asked of me from a co-worker who is working with someone in another state. I suggested the same thing and it did not work even though they tried several times, so did some research and could not find any other answer, that is why I posted the question here. I got a response from my co-worker that the problem was resolved, so I tried to delete the question, but then discovered that someone had posted a comment. So I posted the resolution. Did not know how to close the question without Accepting a Resolution, so had to grade the answer. It was not an Excellent, it was not a definate answer, it was basically just feeling out the question, so I graded it a C - Average. I did not realize that was bad or would reflect adversely on the Expert, so I apologized and asked that it be removed with no points or grade. If you want the points, take the grade. If you don't want the grade, then don't take the points.
