DSN Creation for SQL 6.5

greenspun.com : LUSENET : SQL Server Database Administration : One Thread

Dear Kohnen,

Currently in my machine sql server 7.0 client has been installed. I'm trying to create a DSN for sql server 6.5 which resides in another domain. I'm using TCP/IP protocol. The system displays following error message.

[microsoft][odbc sql server driver][tcp/ip sockets]connectionopen. connection failed. check your network documentation.

Kindly give me the reply.

Regards, T.Karthikeyan

I think the Microsoft Knowledge Base article, "PRB: ODBC Connection Failed: SQLState: '08001' DBMSSOCN" at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q195/5/66.ASP will probably explain the problem.

Good Luck,
