after creating a sql db and using the sa account to login via a pc or thin client i get this error: Connection failed:
SQLState:'01000'
SQL Server Error: 231
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]ConnectionOpen (Connect()).
Copnnection failed:
SQLState: '08001'
SQL Server Error: 17
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

If i log in to the server and run the application it works fine and i can connect to the DB via ODBC just fine using the same information?

Make sure if you have a firewall that port 1433 is open.

In SQL Server MAnagement studio on the server, right click the server name and select properties, on the connections page ensure remote connections is enabled.

In SQL Server Surface Area Configuration, select Surface area configuration for Services and Connections, UNder database engine > remote connection ensure setting is set to Local and Remote connections.

Thanks, all of that is set correctly.  I think it may have something to do with the sa account and setting up the ODBC access?  Is there a way to see where in the ODBC configuration where it maybe dieing?
