I use VS2005 on client system (Windows Vista business) through which I can communicate with the database on the SQL server 2000 remote server (Windows XP SP2).

Problem 1: This setup works only when I turn off windows firewall on the remote machine. I tried adding ports 1433 (tcp) and 1434 (tcp and udp) to exception list in the remote machine but then the connection fails.

Problem 2: When I send my client machine to sleep or hibernate, and after when I start, connection fails and I have to restart the system to get the connection again.

Please help me in resolving these problems.

Could you check to see if you have TCP\IP enabled in your protocol list ?

Ya TCP/IP is enabled and the server is accessible without the firewall.
