Cannot create Odbc connection to sql server 2k from one windows XP machine to another XP machine running sql server 2000 in the same LAN
Posted on 2007-03-28
I have a small Lan with 4 machines running windows XP prof. One of them has sql server 2000 installed on it. I had two machines connect to sql server 2k using ODBC connection and they work fine. I recently bought a new dell computer and then tried to use Odbc to connect to sql server just like the other computers using the same sql driver, sql server username and password but it does not connect.
The servername shows up in "Microsoft Sql server DSN configuration window" but when I go to next and then put Login ID and password and say Next, it does not connect. Any ideas what may be going wrong or where to check?
