(local) does not work in our applications. We shipped an application which uses the connection string as (local) for Sql Server 2000. When our firewall is running , the conneciton is rejected , how can we work around this problem ? We cannot change the connection string now, can we change any settings for the firewall ?

When using (local) it is about name resolution.  (local) usually maps to Named Pipes or 127.0.0.1, but still uses Named Pipes.  I would check the Server Network Utility and make sure that TCPIP is enabled.

The other thing is that if the application is not running on teh machine that SQL Server is running on, then you have bigger problems than that, as (local) does not have a name necessarily that you can map it to via HOSTS or anything else that I know of.
