Set up MS Access client with SQL server on computers connected via a hub with no domain

I have always built ms access clients linked to a SQL server backend on a network with a domain.  I have a potential client who does not have a domain network setup but a couple of pcs connected via a hub.  They have a computer identified to be the server and this too is connected to the hub.  

Can I still set up an MS Access client pointing to a SQL server backend on this network.  I am sure this can work but need confirmation and the SQL connection string format.

Below is the string format I currently use
Public Const connstring = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=" & serverip & ";UID=" & usernamewrite & ";PWD=" & passwordwrite & ";DATABASE=SQLDatabase;encrypt=true"

Will the string above still work or will it have to be altered?

Yes.  So server has two firms of authentication,  trusted connections ( which relies on the network login and a domain) and sql server security,  which relies on a username and password being supplied.   That's what your doing with the connection string now, so no changes.
