We are getting this error while connected from .NET to SQL Server. I am DBA. Please help me solve it.


     [exec] [DBNETLIB]General network error. Check your network documentation.
     [exec] [DBNETLIB]ConnectionOpen (PreLoginHandshake()).

Thanks in advance.

Does this SQL Server live behind a firewall from the .NET application?

I think you are using sql server 2000
for that on your server goto

Start --> all programs --> sql server 2000 --> sql server network utility and enable tcp ip
for  2005

you have sql configuration manager instead of sql server network utility  enable tcip ip for client connection and network connection.

Thanks. No, trainsdse, both .NET & SQL Server are within intranet/LAN. There is no firewall between them. imran fast, I will try out your solution.
