Hello Experts,

I am trying to create an ODBC connection to a SQL Server 2005 instance on another computer on my LAN. This is a workgroup and IS NOT a domain environment. (I have made connections to SQl Server on LAN machines in a domain environment and it works fine)

This ODBC connection fails when I try to make it. The IP addresses for machines and DNS Server (Router in this case) are assigned dynamically.

Does anyone know how to make this connection work?
