    Unanswered: Server Error in SQL 2000

    I installed the DevInfo 5.0 web software on our server and followed the configurations instructions accordingly.
    Now we have a problem of accessing the application from both the server and the client.
    I am getting the following error message:

    Server Error in '/DI5Web' Application.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)

    Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:2.0.50727.832; ASP.NET Version:2.0.50727.832

    We do not have SQL Server 2005 but SQL Server 2000

    Any assistance will be highly appreciated

    that error means a connection could not be made. probably there's something wrong with your connection string.
