I'm attempting a connection to my sql server (running off broadband) from a page I have hosting at my new ISP.. just a standard conn string in .asp..


and i get "[DBNMPNTW]Specified SQL server not found."

From my older host I have no problems connecting with the same string... so I assumed it must be something at my new host, but I'm able to connect to other remote sql servers from my new isp(for example I can connect from my new ISP to the old ISP's SQL server w/o a problem), but for some reason I can't from the new host connect to mine.. is there a setting on mine that needs to change?

newhostwebsvr to oldhostsql works... oldhostwebsvr to mylocalsql works.. newhostwebsvr to mylocalsql doesn't work??
