SQL 2000 Question
Posted on 2009-07-16
Here is my current setup:
Windows 2008 Enterprise (HOST)
Windows 2003 Standard w/SQL 2000 (VIRTUAL MACHINE)
I'm using VMWARE Server for Virtualization
Here's my problem:
I have a SQL database setup on the 2003 virtual server. I'm using boreland BDE on client machines to connect to a custom written application to connect to the SQL database. When I setup the cutom application on client machines, they can't see the SQL server BUT if I install it on the 2003 server the application works fine connecting to the SQL server.
My question is, is there some kind of speical setting on VMWARE or SQL 2000 or maybe the HOST (2008 box) keeping my clients from connecting to the SQL database? I can ping the 2003 server but for some reason they can't recognize it having SQL on it.
