I'm occasionally receiving a com/ado error with a description of:

[dbnetlib][connectionopen (SECDoclient handshake ()).] SSL Security Error.

This is a SQL 2000 SP2 on Windows 2000 sp3 server. The application that utilizes SQL resides on the same server.

I've verified that authentication is set to Mixed Mode per the microsoft doc on this error, but the error persists.

Any guidance will be helpful.
