    Our db is SQL Server 2000. Admin give me user password that only I can access to one certain view in whole DB, I test my connection string in some connection string tester program (shown in attachment) and it said that connection managed to connect to Db successfully but I don't know where is the problem that I can't use that connection string file in my .asp pages, I just need to connect to DB by that connection string then my problem is solved, please give me some solutions.

    If you want to test the application please go to thins link and choose a radio button then enter something in shipment tracking text box (its above news frame) then click go and you'll see the error)

    Thank you very much folks.

    sounds like a firewall issue maybe, have you tried turning of your firewall to see if that is the issue?

    The is saying it cant see any SQL server. You know your username and password is correct becuase the utility can connect. Only thing i would think is the program you installed for checking your connections is getting through your firewall but sql server is not. Check you have allowed access to the correct ports.
