The second server can not connect to the SQL server of interest.
Some possible solutions gathered from the web:

Use the SQL Client Configuration utility (from the machine u are connecting)
to create alias server name for the sql server using the TCP/IP protocol
specifying IP and port number.
And use this Alias name to connect to SQL server using TCP/IP


Wish I can help

Thanks for your response.  I had previously tried the method you described above without any luck, however after reading another article about this issue it came to light that an incorrect version of the MDAC could also cause the same symptoms so we upgraded MDAC to 2.8 and hey presto... success

Many thanks for trying to help though
