Can't connect to SQL 2000

This is strange....

I have a VB standard app that connects to SQL 2000 via the DED.  I have the app and SQL 2000 both installed on Window XP Pro.  Now this app has always connected to SQL until.... I connected to the internet via my slow dialup.  If I'm connected with my dialup I can not connect to SQL.

I get the following error: Run-time error -2147220992(80040200) [DBNetLiB][ConnectOpen(Connet()).] SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

And if I disconnect from my dialup then everything is O.K.

My problem with this is that the client expects to use this app and be connected to the internet.

Can Anyone Help with this strange problem?

You need to set your workstation to use TCP/IP with SQL Server.  Use the SQL Server Client Network Utility.

Also, please maintain these very old open questions:
1 11/11/2003 500 Configure user-to-user Apache connection  Open Apache
2 11/11/2003 500 Configure user-to-user Apache connection  Open Apache

Thanks.

acperkins,

ah... thanks.   What I did was go into Server Network Utilities and removed 'Named Pipes' and this fixed the problem.
