Connect to sql 2019 failing

Last Modified: 2021-04-21
We recently installed sql 2019.  We are trying to create an odbc from a windows 2008 server but it fails with error 17.  Our knowledge of sql server is minimal so we are unsure how to proceed.  We can connect from the 2008 server to the 2019 server using remote desktop.

How can we create a working odbc?

thanks.odbc connect error
