Is VB6 all that you can use? VB6 is more than fifteen years old, and has had no support of any kind from Microsoft for over six years. See the Microsoft Lifecycle article for details.
Because of the age of VB6, there is no supported configuration. You may be able to finagle a working configuration using ODBC on the client.
SQL 2008 still has extended support, but products on extended lifecycle support are not recommended for new installations. I'd recommend using SQL 2014 instead.
