I replaced a network card on our W2000 server and gave it the same IP address as the old one which is no longer there.
Windows 2000 complains that it is the same as the old card which is NO longer there (WHY???) I tell it to take it anyway.
Most everything works again except: a java application on another server trying to connect to 192.168.0.13:1433 gets an error establishing socket.
I disabled the firewall, that's not it.
When I try to connect with Query Analyzer or Enterprise manager, I can connect to the MS SQL database.
This is way beyond my limited knowledge... any clues?
