Ok, So on this problem I have narrowed it down. On my server I have
Sql 2000 and Sql 2005 running side by side. i only get the connection
error when trying to connect to sql 2005. I can connect to sql 2000
just fine.

The only difference is the instance name. To connect to 2000 I would
just use my ip address. But to connect to sql 2005 I have to use
myipaddress\\Server2005. In windows this works, but in mac and linux
it doesnt. So the problem comes down to just the Server2005 instance
name in mac/linux.

Can anybody help me out with this?? It is driving me crazy. Thanks!
