ODBC connection failures with MS Access

I have a sql (2000) server called Numbers in the network and the ip address of 192.168.0.95. The server instance is called NUMBERS\BKUPEXEC, and thers a database called VIS_PRD that was created earlier this morning.

Im trying to configure one of the client machines to connect to this server via a user and/or system instance created in thier ODBC Data Sources. Couple of things that I notice when I attempt the connection

The server name NUMBERS or NUMBER/BKUPEXEC do not appear as a server option on the server pulldown (as if the ODBC Data Source Administrator) is not able to resolve to it and find it by default

I manually entered the server instance in (NUMBERS/BKUPEXEC) and tried authenticating using both NT and SQL authentication and I keep getting the following error

Connection failed: SQLState: '0100' SQL Server Error:53....ConnectionOpen (CreateFile()) Connection failed..

What could I be doing wrong?

i agree with shane...almost certainly due to outdated mdac...but also make sure you have installed the latest jet sp's

Yay!!! Thanks, that seemed to have worked very well..

The issue I'm having now is that some of the tables that I uploaded to the server contained indexes set to automatically increment (autonumbers). They are no longer incrementing as they should in sql2000. Is there some sort of a script or configuration that I must make to have my indexes increment as they did before in ms access?
