Hi there, we have one wesite which is built using php, the website is trying to connect to a database on another server which uses SQL 2008, when trying to connect we get the following error message.

The login packet used to open the connection is structurally invalid; the connection has been closed. Please contact the vendor of the client library. [CLIENT: ***.**.**.**]

We have done some research and found the following.

MaxTokenSize 20000

The recomendation has been followed with no change in the result.

This is the local error message that we have been receiving.

Warning: mssql_connect() [function.mssql-connect]: Unable to connect to server: in /home/............/public_html/sql/index.php on line 8
Couldn't connect to SQL Server on

Can anyone suggest where to go from here?
