Provide the connection strings you are using, both for local and remote

Is TCP/IP installed and running on both host and clients? Have you tried
pinging the server from the clients? Have you tried pinging localhost from
the server?

Sounds like the clients are not running TCP/IP either.

If a netbeui (Named Pipes) connection works then you know that the network
physically works. It won't resolve why your TCP/IP connections are failing.

In another posting, didn't you say that you couldn't see port 3050
listening when you ran netstat -an?
