Sql Server Connection issue

Sql Server Connection issue

Sql Server Connection issue

I have an internal and external SQL Server. The External is working great. I am able to write and read to/from...

The Internal has an IP address and port, I have created Windows users on the server and gave those users security permissions of db.owner / admin. I set up the Connection to reflect the port, allow remote connections, etc (this server works for another piece of appware so I know it's possible), checked the firewall and set rules for the TCP/UDP.

I can Telnet and ODBC into the server from the outside fine. However, when using a connection string in VB/ASP .net it will not work with the IP address/sa credentials (same credentials that do work with Telnet and ODBC). I have also turned on the SQL Server Browser.

Anything I could be missing???

RE: Sql Server Connection issue

Yes - of course. I think maybe my internal security is still somehow blocking. I am going to write a mini program and stick it on external server and run it and see if it's that.

RE: Sql Server Connection issue

Can you show the connection string you are using?
