I have setup an APP server on Win Server 2008 R2 and my SQL server( SQL server 2008 R2) on a separate server Windows Vista. When I host my application on App server and trying to connect to SQL server it doesnt connect. Not sure if I have missed some settings. Could you please suggest if there are any settings that I need to make for this to work.

thanks in advance Sai

Connection string is taken from web.config file and I use Ent lib 4.0 to connect to sql server. I'm unable to get the error displayed. I will retry by changing the code and publish it again and capture the error. – Sai May 17 '11 at 8:52
