why did i keep getting a connection error?

P: n/a

i've been developing a webservice on machine A and one WebMethod of this
webservice will connect to SQL Server2000 on machine B using a connect string
defined in Web.config as below:

<add key="sqlDbConn.ConnectionString" value="workstation
id="";packet size=4096;integrated security=SSPI;data
source=;persist security info=False;initial
catalog=RVLabeling_Joe" />

i'm sure the IP address as above is exactly the machine B's IP and database
name is correct! Also SQL server instance is running! but when i test the
WebMethod on IE through HTTP, i keep getting a error like this:

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: SQL Server does not exist or access
at System.Data.SqlClient.ConnectionPool.CreateConnect ion()
at System.Data.SqlClient.ConnectionPool.UserCreateReq uest()
at System.Data.SqlClient.ConnectionPool.GetConnection (Boolean&
