I&#039;m not sure if this is the appropriate section for this question, but I&#039;ve got two servers on different domains. I&#039;m trying to get the first server to connect via ODBC through a firewall. Our network administrator set up the firewall so I can hit the SQL Server with the client machine, but I&#039;m trying to make the connection as usual- SQL Server authentication, I know the ID and password are correct, but I still get the error "either the server does not exist or your password is invalid" Has anyone ever done this before?<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR>Meg:)
