Error in ASP.NET 2.0 Login failed for user '(null)'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection

I am running a linked server using windows authentication. WHen I run a query against the linked server it runs fine. However when I try to connect that to my ASP page and run that query i get an error. Everything else in the ASP site linked to this database runs fine, just not the linked server based query. I am getting the following error. I have impersenation set to true in my web.config as well.
This is ASP.NET 2.0, SQL 2005 linked to a SQL 2000 instance and Windows Authentication.

Here is my errors: any help?
TCP Provider: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

also web config:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

in the linked server? or the main sql server? any asp page i hit from the main sql server works fine. its just the linked part that doesnt.  i tested the linked server connections under my user id (using windows auth for everything)

so i thought it should work at least as me but it doesnt...

>or the main sql server?
yes, in the main sql server. open the security folder, logins, and create there the logins based on the windows accounts used (or the windows groups those users are member of).
than, grant that login the permissions in the database(s) ..

edi77Author Commented:
ok so after adding that user to sql i am getting this error now....
seems better
Cannot open database "TestADNI" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'ADS\mmgehg'

this user can login into any other page that accesses the db just not this one, because this one is the linked server one. any idea what to do next?
