Developer Edition having issues connecting to server via TCP/IP

P: n/a
Don't know if there is a simple solution for this one or not. When
running SQL server on a machine with 2000 loaded and the complete SQL
package I don't have any issues. Now I'm trying to login using my XP
machine with MSSQL developer edition, and I can not connect to my
remote servers via TCP/IP. It can see the server, and it establishes a
connection, but I can't access my files, and the connection seems
incredibly slow. I have checked my firewall, and its fine. I'm just
wondering why my 2000 system can access it, but my XP can't. Any
ideas???

I'm confused, can't you connect at all, or is the communication just slow?

On which machine does the SQL Server you are connecting to run? Is the XP
machine in the same domain as the SQL Server machine?

What files are you unable to access? You usually don't use SQL Server
to access files.

I can connect to the server, but it is slow. But I can't access
information such as the databases. It comes up with no items. I also
can't backup any of the data to a local machine. There wasn't any
issue until we loaded the 2003 Developer Edition on our XP machines.
I've loaded both service packs 3 and 4 hoping that would solve the
problem. I've checked TCP/IP setting, and the firewall.

The server I'm trying to access is a remote server running Windows
2000, with service pack 4, and it is in a different domain.

I realise that I should have asked what you are connecting with and
with which credentials.

From what you say, it sounds as it you connect with Enterprise Manager
with integrated security, but your Windows login has not been added to
BUILTIN\Administrators and on top of all databases are set to autoclose.
When databases are set to autoclose, and you connect as a non-priv user,
EM has to access every database to see if you are permitted, and this
can take forever.
