    Unanswered: connect to sql server desktop engine over internet

    i have got to connect to sql server desktop engine over internet with the following connection string

    conString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Persist Security Info=True;Initial Catalog=" & dbName & ";Network Address=" & IPAddress & ";Data Source=" & DataSource & " ;User ID=" & UserId & " ; Password=" & Password

    Plz also inform me about the restriction imposed in connectivity by any of the window operating system such as that win 98 wont work or work!

    There is no firewall involved. The two computers are in the same room and connected directly to the internet.

    Even the ping is not going to either computer.

    So what could be the possible problem and the solution.

    need urgent

    setup a domain or at least a workgroup so you can access the resources on the msde machine from the other computer. untill you can at least ping it you won't be able to connect.
