I have an application that was developed using VB 6 and uses SQL Server 2000 as the database. I am using SQL Server authentication in my code to access the data and the SQL Server user is setup and has the correct rights to the tables and stored procedures. The Windows 2000 Server running SQL Server is part of a workgroup, not a domain. I am running the application from computers on a seperate domain. I can connect to the SQL Server fine if the login on the computer running the application is the same login name and password, as on the Windows 2000 Server. If the user's login doesn't exist or the password is different then I cannot connect to the SQL server in my application. Is there a way to work around this security issue. I'm confused because I assumed that if the SQL Server authentication user is setup on the SQL Server I should be able to get to the data reguardless of who the Windows login is.
