TestConnectivity returns true on dev machine but false on test machine



I have a SQLServer 2005 database on a client server. I have a VPN connection to their server. I am using the connection code from [here|]

When I run the app from my local dev machine it works fine, reports display things are great. When I run the app from testing machine it fails. I have followed the trail and found out that it fails on the TestConnectivity method. This occurs despite the fact that I haven't changed anything in the code.

I am using the same VPN information, and I know that I can access the database from that machine. The clients also have trouble with it and they are on the same network.

I am using Windows XP SP3 for both PC's

Does anyone have any idea's?
