    Unanswered: Replication Problem

    High I hope someone can help me.

    I'm trying to set-up replication between us and a business client.
    We have a VPN into their network on 1 account set against 1 userid.
    We then have a SQL SERVER acocunt on their Sql Server 7 machine.

    We are running Win2000 and SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Std.


    The publication has been set-up and looks okay
    so has the pull subscription on our server.

    When running the replication though I'm getting the following error.

    The process could not connect to Distributor 'NXTIMSVR'.


    Any ideas would be appriciated.

    Where is your Distributor reside at? how was the account setup in the Distributor?

    The distributer is a the remote client site, I do not know how the distributer was set-up for we have just been asked to look after a section of their data.
    Is there something that I could ask them to check.

    The first thing you have to make sure is that your publisher has to be able to access the Distributor. The ID that you setup your publication is the one you need to check. Then your subscirber has to be able to pull in information from the Distirbutor, so it need to be able to access the Distributor also.

    The publisher can see the distributer, its the PULL subscriber that is not connecting to the distributer.
