I've recently updated my system to XP service pack 3. I am now getting a problem when using Sql server 2000, which is running on a seperate machine.  Everytime I try to open a connection, whether through query analyzer, enterpirse or VB6 - I am getting a 6-8 second delay for the connection to open.  Very annoying.

Help please!

Sounds like a DNS timeout issue.  Check the name of the database server by PINGing it after a fresh reboot (i.e. before accessing this server at all).  See if it takes a long time to resolve the name, too.

If it's something else, then a network analyzer would find it rather quickly.  Get Wireshark (www.wireshark.org) and take a network capture while you are experiencing the delay.  Post the PCAP file if you cannot see what might be wrong, and we can review it together.
