I can not get bcp to work on my local machine for SQL Server 2005. I get the following error:
SQLState = 08001, NativeError = 2
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2].
SQLState = HYT00, NativeError = 0
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Login timeout expired
SQLState = 08001, NativeError = 2
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.

I have tried to both use a trusted connection and provide a username/password combination.

I have changed the following settings so far:
- Enable remote connections
- Enable named pipes
- Start the SQL Server browser service

Is the server is running in mixed mode

Is  the server is configured to accept both local and remote connection

Yes, it is.

have you made sure the network adapter is configured for NETBIOS? (required for named pipes)
