We have installed SQL Client Connectivity components on Win98 Machine using SQLREDIS.exe supplied by Microsoft.

On Win98 machine,Using the client Network utility we have enabled the protocols in this order :

Named Pipes

When we attempt to create a database on the SQL server which is on the Internet from the Win98 machine using OSQL utility we get the following errors

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Named Pipes]SQL Server does not
exist or access denied.
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Named Pipes]ConnectionOpen

We are using Database Server Authentication by supplying User Id and Password.

We will be gratefull if any one help us in this regard.

The matter is urgent.
