PocketPC cannot find remote SQL Server database

Last Modified: 2013-12-27
I have an application build in VB.net for PocketPC. When trying to connect to the remote SQL Server 2005 database, it gives an error stating it can't find the database server. I tried on 3 differents PocketPC terminal and it always give the same error. I can ping the server IP from the terminal and database/credentials are setted correctly. SQL Server accept remote connection and TCP/IP protocol is enable.

I can connect to that very same database remotly, from Management Studio or even from another program (windows based) I made.

So, any idea why I can't connect from a wireless PocketPC terminal ?

thanks for your time and help
