SQL Server ODBC Error

Help!  I need to connect to a remote SQL Server and I cannot get the ODBC connection working.  I receive the following error message:

Connection failed:
SQLState: '01000'
SQL Server Error: 10060
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP IP Sockets]ConnectionOpen(PreLoginHandshake()).
Connection failed:
SQLState: '08001'
SQL Server Error: 11
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP IP Sockets]General network error. Check your network documentation.

I am behind an ISA 2000 firewall.  Port 1433 is open.

I need this resolved as soon as possible.  I will gladly double the points if someone can help me get this working.  Thanks in advance.

1. Check to see if you can ping the server in question.
2. Scan the port from the server to see if it is open, the latest service packs from microsoft have been closing these.

See if you see an error like this in the error logs

SuperSocket Info: Bind failed on TCP port 1129

It means another program has the port.

Thanks for your quick response.  Yes, I can successfully ping the server in question.  I do not have access to the remote SQL Server, therefore I cannot try some of your other recomendations.

This connection worked in the past.  It is just recently that the connection failed.  The only recent change to our network was an upgrade from DSL to a T1.  The T1 router is not blocking any ports though.
Duane LawrenceCommented:
Then I would bet it is a router configuration somewhere.  I can not help you with routers, but it is time to get tech support with your T1 provider involved.

It worked before.
A change happened, install a T1
RESULT: It does not work anymore

I was afraid of that...  I was told by the T1 provider that it was not a T1 issue, but I will look into that further.  I will post again when I have more information.  Thanks.
Duane LawrenceCommented:
Ask your network admin if he put in any new routers to support the T1.  It could be that router and not the T1 provider.  You need to have your network admin guy involved.
