This is a tri-plicate post. Please do not post the same question more then one as most of the experts are reading all the VB/.Net topics.

Is your PC1 name is POWER?

Do you have firewalls?

Hi there..
did you get my email ?...

well here is one more thing that you can do... Follow these steps..
-> In ur desktop create a blank text file. Name it as "MyFile.udl" ... not "MyFile.txt"
-> Double click on it, a connection wizard will open.
-> Go to the 'Provider' tab. Select data provider (in your case select OleDbProvider for Sql Server). Cleck next.
-> select the server name from the drop down. You may use Windows Authentication  or  ur ID/Pwd. Make sure you check allow saveing password, to include the password in the connection string.
-> Test connection if it is alright. Click ok.
-> Now open the file in notepad. You will see the connection string.

If you are using System.Data.SqlClient, you don't have to include the "Provider=SQLOLEDB;".
Make sure you have setup the account for the username/pwd you have given, in the sql server with proper access level.
