I´ve set up a local database on my hosted webserver, and successfully connect to it using Management Studio as well as sqlcmd. But when I try to connect to it through my web application I get problems. I´ve enabled TCP/IP and Named pipes for my SQL Express instance.

My Connstring: "Driver={SQL Native

I get a "[Microsoft][SQL Native Client]TCP Provider: No such host is known." error, and I suspect that the firewall might be the problem, but don´t have access to that at the moment.

Any ideas?

Seems like this just turned into an ASP-question: =)

This VBScript works:

set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objConn.Open "Driver={SQL Native Client};Server=.\SQLEXPRESS;Database=my_database;Uid=my_user;Pwd=my_password;"


But this JSCRIPT gets the above error:

var conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection");
conn.Open("Driver={SQL Native Client};Server=.\SQLEXPRESS;Database=my_database;Uid=my_user;Pwd=my_password;");


The exact same script works on my local web server (IIS 5.1).
