hi all,

I am a newbie user of Sql ssever 2000. I'am working on XP with the entreprise manager to connect a remote server wich belong to a friend of mine.
From the beginning i have problems to connect to the server, but their were solved by creating alias, using TCP/IP, and entering IP iinstead of server name. and changing my connection propertie to not use the internet firewall option.

but it doesn't much work i'm sure the P have not change, and sure that my friend fon't change anything on the server.

the error is the server sever is not know to be running and few time later, this server does not exist, ConnectionOpen connect()).

I really don't know what to do to solve it. so if you have an idea i will straight try it.
