I have a problem to acces to a Lonked Server in transactions to acces one Windows XP machine. To other Win XP and 2003 works fine.

The MSDTC service is running and configured to access inbound transactions and the No authentication.

I tested with Dtcping and the comunication works fina, but in SQL Server i get this error.

I'm not running the windows Firewall no other firewall.

Thanks, Ariel

I'v just solvedthis issue. The server only accepted connections by TCP/IP. I changed it to accep Name Pipes connections too and worked perfectly.

Most servers will accept connections only by TCP/IP by default because that is the standard.  When changing the setting, make sure you change it back so it does not conflict with other incoming connections.

Investigating, I found the answer by myself so, I think, you should refund the points.

Why do you suggest to remove the question without refund?
