propably simple

I'm sorry for posting to the developers group, although I'm not one.

I just have a simple question and the other news group is not helping.

for three days now I'm trying to get an application connects to a MSSQL
database on a windows box.

I'm running the following:

Mandrake 8.0
wine 20010731

windows 98 partition and sql server is installed on it

My application is built in Powerbuilder 6.0.

it comes up with the user name and password box which should be
authenticated through the database.

when I submit the user name and password I get the following error:

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL SERVER DRIVER][TCP?IP SOCKET]General network error

on the linux box I've already setup the MSSQL alias in the client
connectivity utility of the sql server.

I just want to know if I'm configuring the native and builtin wrong in
my conf file or what I'm trying to do is not doable at all.

I'll appreciate an answer so I can get some sleep, I'm literaly working
on that for three days.
