Hello,

I'm trying to log into a remote SQL Server but get: Login Failed for user
'XXXXXXXX' and I also get the 18456 error.

The host company assure me they are the right logins and curiously when I use Visual Web Developer and the data connection I can access the database tables etc.

I am using TCP/IP

any ideas what might be going wrong?

thanks.

What is the service pack status of said SQL Server?

or ask the SQL Server admin.

Hi Micky,
You've likely not configured either SQL Express or your computer to accept remote connections. Follow the instructions in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;914277 to do this.
