Hi, I am getting this error

"[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied."

when trying to get some data from SQL Server 2000 database.
SQL Server is installed on Windows Server 2003, and i am testing the application from WinXP sp2. Testing from other machines with same settings goes properly, only this one machine doesn't work.
Any ideas are appreciated.

Thx

Wrong password/username?
Are you logged in as admin?

I found that DNS was making the problem...couldn't recognise the name of the server. Changed the name to ip address and all worked.

Thx
