Problem setting up SQL 2005 mirroring

Hello,

I'm setting up a mirror for my SQL Server. Since we don't use domains I used the Configure Security Wizard and changed the servers names by their IPs: 127.0.0.1 on the Principal and 192.168.1.33 on the Mirror. After backing up the database on the principal and restoring it on the mirror, leaving the mirror's db on the NORERECOVERY state I tried to start the mirroring but I get this error message:

The server TCP//:192.168.1.33:5022 can not be reached or does not exist. Check the network address name and that the ports for the local and remote endpoints are operational. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 1418).

I should mention that I checked the port 5022 for both server using netstat and telnet and they are opened and listening. On the SQL Server log this message is logged: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

Also, I checked the mirror server and the database is with the PARTNER option on, so this tells me the principal connected and has done something but couldn't finish due to this problem I'm trying to figure out.

Any idea?

Thank you!
