Can not remotely connect to SQL Desktop

Hello -

My issue is that I have one PC running a program called GHIN. This program uses a 2005 SQL Desktop engine to store data.  This instance of this program works fine on the psuedo server.  I am supposed to be able to connect this program on a remote computer to this database.  The program on the remote computer however says it cannot see the database.  

The two computers are on their own workgroup.  There is no firewalls on either computer or virus protection program.  I went into Desktop SQL and allowed remote connections.  I can open up documents on the remote PC stored on the GHIN server.  There is a D-link router that is involved in the process and it does have a firewall on it.  Both PC's can see each other fine.

Any ideas?

The usernames for the program is the same.  Do I need to put in the remote computer's username?

I opened it up.  I still am getting the connection error that it can not find //Pro-1/GHINGHP  database.

Well, I am not sure.  I have MS SQL config tools, but I am not sure where to see this information.  I did see where I was logging in under a built in account.  It was called a network account.
