If you can log in with some computers using that connection string, then it looks to be correct, so your potential problems here are:

  • The computers do not have network connectivity to the SQL server
  • The computers do not have the required SQL Server driver available
  • There are firewall issues.

It would be useful if you could provide any error message you may be getting.
