    Unanswered: MSDE SQL Connection error

    I am trying to connect to a remote MSDE SQL database. When I set up the odbc connection I get a connection denied error. The SQL server is on a windows 2003 server. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, LinsLo

    MSDE won't allow remote connections on Windows 2003 unless you apply MSDE sp3a.

    Why odbc??

    what are you using to connect? a programming language (c, c++, c#) and are they .net? If you are using .net then i would suggest trying to use the sql connection library instead of the odbc. are you on the same network as the db server? please provide more info on your situation. I can not give an accurate answer with out more information
