Hi,

I'm trying to connect to a Sql 7 machine, using the Sql Server 2000 SP3a client tools installed on a Windows XP Prof box.

I can connect to the Sql7 machine via Enterprise Mng fine, but when i try to connect using Query Analyzer i get the following errors in the results pane after it loads up;

*******************************************
Server: Msg 11, Level 16, State 1, Line 0
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP/IP Sockets]General network error. Check your network documentation.
ODBC: Msg 0, Level 16, State 1
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Communication link failure
ODBC: Msg 0, Level 16, State 1
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Communication link failure
*******************************************

As an FYI, the SQL 7 machine is using the 2.65 ODBC driver because an app on the server will only run under that driver.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
