Can Windows Server 2003 communicate (ODBC) with a NT Server machine?

We are converting our servers from NT Server 4.0  and 2000 Advanced server to Windows Server 2003. Our Web servers will be first (running NT Server 4 and Advanced Server 2000) . Will they be able to communicate via ODBC links to the data servers that are still running NT Server (until we get them converted also)?  I assume that port operations are the same between the different versions - Our firewall is configured for handling port transfers between the web serves and the data server.

I can't think of any reason you would have trouble with ODBC other than firewall issues.  Obviously, you should test first, but I would be surprised if you had any issues with ODBC. (Though you might want to make sure you're running the latest MDAC).
