Unable to create a data connection

Unable to create a data connection

Unable to create a data connection

I have been trying and troubleshooting for two days on this one problem.  I has a sharepoint site and i am trying to create a data connection in frontpage for this site to another sharepoint site on a different server.  they are in the same subnet/network.  I am the dbo for both.  I keep receiving the message that the data retrieval service is having trouble locating it.  If i add a customized code to connect it always tells me that the authentication is wrong.  I have sql and windows authentication both turned on both servers.  I can however connect in frontpage to the local server just not the remote one.  Am I missing a step to make this happen?  this is one of those things they wanted yesterday so I'm under a lot of pressure to get this connection created.  

any help would be soooo appreciated.
