I have MS SQL server setup on a W2003 box, and I can only setup an OCBC driver on the server to access via localhost. If I setup an ODBC driver on the server using the server name, or server IP address, I receive access denyed. I need to be able to access the ms sql server with an odbc connection via the server name or server ip address. The server works fine sharing files by the server name.

Are you using Windows authentication or SQL Server authentication?
Has the user been granted access to the database you are trying to connect to?
