Hi There

There's a few things to check..

Ensure that you have both Named Pipes and tcp/ip configured as transport for your SQL server.

The SQL Native client is also a common cause for remote timeouts (ie it isn't installed on the client PC). Lastly you ned to check that there is no firewall or anti virus scanner preventing your connection from the client to the server

These are the usual gotchas.

Please let us know if you still have issues (and maybe let us know what the specifics are ie versions and what you have already done)

Good Luck
