Sounds like you have a problem with the Firewall.  You can try to telnet to the servername :1434

Telnet to win2008test like this:

telnet win2008test 1434

If it fails then you cannot connect outside the machine on those ports, if it sits and waits for a command, then you can.  Then there are other reasons.

after opening port 1433 and 1434, and rebooting domaincontroller an win2008test it seems to work.

So i think it was a firewall / domain controller problem.

Thanks for the help.

i will most of the point to dbaduck (100) for the firewall help, and the rest to angelll (25) for the links.
