I have tried to connec tto my SQL database both from a client machine and through an ODBC connection on the server itself.

The ODBC connection gives the following error message

SQL State 28000 SQLServer Error 18452 ODBC SQL Server Driver - Login Failed for 'sa' - Not associated with a trusted connection.


Through the program on the client machine I get the error, Login failed for Demon - Not associated with a trusted connection

Try to connect using Query Analyzer with the same username/password and see what happens.

Also, the client machine should have the client connectivity tools.
