I posted thismessage on asp mb before I noticed this mb,sorry! <BR>I have developed ASPs on a 2000 IIS server. I also have a sql server that holds db for pages(also 2000 box) I recently moved the pages to a straight nt IIS server connecting to a nt sql server. I can run page locally, in other words from the IIS server the db connection works.When I try to connect to page from a client machine, the connection to db does not work.(doesnt connect). This seems to be a nt IIS server / nt sql server issue. Anybody have any ideas, other than making the IIS server a sql server as well. Thanks Graham Forte
