Connection problem with Analysis Services

Connection problem with Analysis Services

Connection problem with Analysis Services

Hallo together,
I'm using a separat PC in the network as a kind of test server and installed SQL Server 2005 on it. And there I established a cube with SQL Server Analysis Services.
From my PC and with my account I have rights to read and write on this PC and with \\c161FI005\c$ I can open the C hard drive on it for example.
Now I want to use the addin Excel 2002/2003 Add-In für SQL Server Analysis Services SP1 and connect to the server with it.

But there always appears this error:
OLAP Server error on connection \\C161FI005
OLAP Server error: Unable to connect to the Analysis server. The server name \\C161FI005 was not found. Please verify that the name you entered is correct, and then try again.

But the name is right and it should work. What can I do?
Thanks for any help,
