    Remote Console locks up after logon




      Version 8.8

      SQL 2005

      Server 2003 SP2

      (New install)


      I installed the Remote Console on my XP workstation followed by the console SP3 update.  When I launch the console I enter my credentials then connect, it is then the program locks up.  After 5 minutes I receive the following error message


      [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.
      Invalid connection string attribute


      I've checked or setup the following:


      • TCP/IP and PIPE are enabled
      • Created an ODBC on my workstation
      • Registry Service on the server and it's running
      • Installed this on another workstation and the same thing happens.
      • Successfully Ping IP and Server name


      This may be of some help, when I try to telnet to the SQL port my command prompt window goes blank.


      Thanks in advance!
