If I recall right in ADO the connection string should be

strConnection = _T("Driver={SQL Server};Server=130.120.110.001;"
     "Address=130.120.110.001,1052;Network=dbnmpntw;Database=MyDatabaseName;"
     "Uid=myUsername;Pwd=myPassword;");

Usually better for performance but bad for security.  Stick to TCP IP.
