I have a SQL Server application, in which I've created a linked server, but I can not see the resultant tables in the database. I have an established ODBC connection, and I am able to see the tables using WinSQL. Included below in the code section is the connection string that a colleague passed along to me, and he suggested I use the "Microsoft OLE DB provider for ODBC Drivers" as my connection choice. When I attempt to look at the catalogue, the system makes an attempt and then fails after about ten-to-fifteen minutes of trying. The final screenshot in the image shows the error message I finally get after SQL Server's marathon attempt.
