Problem connecting to SQL2005 from Pocket PC 2003

Problem connecting to SQL2005 from Pocket PC 2003
I developed a pocket pc application with VB.net 2003 that was using SQL2000 as backend database.
I have been using .Net SqlClient data provider for the database communication.
The database was migrated to SQL2005 running as SQL2000 and now I am getting a SqlException that says Login failed even though I have the correct connections string.Does this error have something to do with the migration to SQL2005.

Yes we are able to connect throught the management studio 2005 instance with the user name & password. We thought it was an NAT issue, So I physically went on-site to behind the client's firewall and the actual DB Server Name to connect and the same results.

A successfull log in using MGMT Studio 2K5
Failed Pocket PC connection.

Its strange because you are getting an error message that it can't authenticate you...but it looks like you are getting to the actual server.
