I&#039m having this problem connecting to a SQL2000 server. I belive that it is my ISP, but they say it&#039s not. i have tried other ISP&#039s (2 dial-ups, 1 cable) and they worked fine. Does anyone know what is happening here? I can make a telnet session (to check the port (1433) to see if i can reach it), and I can get denied just fine (this being good), but why can&#039t i connect to it with EM?<BR>well i hope someone can help me out. <BR>Thanks.<BR>powerwav@rushmore.com<BR>Loren Erickson
