I have a client who I am migrating from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003 Server.  They have Microsoft Navision v 3.70.   They are running navision not through SQL but through navisions native database architectre. I tried to mimick the old server setup but am not able to connect from the client to the new server.  I modified the services file with

NVSERVER 3001/tcp as in the documentation

and entered the command from the /server folder

server SERVERNAME=NVSERVER NETTYPE=TCP DATABASE = "C:\<PATH TO DB>\database.fdb

I get a response saying  database server sucessfully started.  Press ESC to shut down the server.

I try to connect from the client using:

Server Name: <ip address of the server>
Database name: database
Authentication: database Server Authentication
User id: <myuserid>
Password: <mypassword>

I GET THE ERROR TCP TIMED OUT.ETIMEOUT

ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED AS THE NEED TO RESOLVE IS IMMEDIATE.
