I have a SSL certificate on a box running windows 2003 and MS SQL Server 2000.

I'm using coldfusion data source to hold the encrypted connection string.

In the Data Source - Advanced - section I added "ValidateServerCertificate=false;EncryptionMethod=SSL" in the query string box.

My web app is working great. but how do I verify that the connection is in fact encrypted?

Remember I'm using sql server 2000 so I guess my choices are limited if I want to inspect a sql connection.

I'm not opposed to installing some sort of sniffing application.

What would be the best and easiest way to make sure my web app is using an encrypted connection?

You can use SQL Server Profiler and trace cnnection events. I have no SQL 2000 instance available to check which events and data are available but all has meaningfull names so you should find it.

That's a good suggestion patrikt but I could not get any meaningful infrormation with the SQL Profiler.
I first tried to use only the "Connection" filter info then I tried the default template.
Niether returned data to check for encrypted connections.
Do you have any other ideas?

Did you checked all data columns of that event? It s by default hidden.
I'm not sure if SQL 2000 event contains enough information, but it should.
