Urgent Help about SQL Server Connection


HK newsgroup

I have a problem connecting my SQL Server 2005 from a ASP Webpage.

When I trying to connect using the following connection string:
"Provider=SQLOLEDB; Data Source =2xx.xxx.xxx.xxx; Initial Catalog = xxx;
User Id = xxx; Password=xxx"

The browser returns an error:
"Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80004005'
[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access

If I put the ASP page under the same local machine with the SQL Server, it
works fine.
However it failed to connect if I put the ASP page in another client
machine, which then remote connect to the SQL Server machine.

I am sure I have openned the port 1433 and 80, because I can connect by
using SQL Server Management Studio by using the same IP address, and I can
access the IIS thru a client machine.

Is there anything missing in my Win Server 2003 machine that blocked the
connection from Web? or any setting missing in the SQL Server to accept Web
