On a Windows XP workstation that is on the same domain as the SQL server and is apparently connected through our WAN, what could cause SQL server it think that this workstation is remote and not local?  The other workstations (50 total) in that office have no issues.  I'm thinking there is something broken or misconfigured on this workstation.

    Is it on the same VLAN as the other workstations?  Does it have any software firewall running on it that other workstations don't have?


    Accepted Solution

    It turned out just to be a bad Windows user profile.  I got the local IT person to redo the user's profile which fixed everything.
