for sql authentication you need this string.
Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;
To make a connection using integrated security, you login which you are currently using should be present in the remote SQL Server instance. The syntax you have provided is fine, however, you need to make sure that your login exists in the remote SQL Server instance - then you can make a connection(as this is integrated security)
