    Okay, here's one that I can't for the life of me figure out.

    I've got SQL Server 2000 client installed. I've been able to connect to 15 databases across 6 servers using the default TCP/IP settings.

    Last month, I was approached by a client to redevelop a website that was drawn from an SQL Server database. I have attempted to connect to the database by using the default TCP/IP settings in the CNU, with no success. All I receive are server timeouts.

    However, what's really weird is this:

    1) I cna telnet to the server IP and port.
    2) I can download the database from one SQL Serer to another using Export Data.
    3) It connects via the website code provided.

    Anyone got any ideas of where I can look to determine wmy issue?

    did u use the sql alias and specified the port ?
    If yes, there may be the ISP block on the sql for some region related blocks.
    Check out the hosting providers for that sql db and ask if they have some country / region blocks applied to the sql?
