From the above line I can see that your server name or machine name is :

Of course these will fail.

The constant "localhost" equates to which is basically a loopback
connector to the machine that you are working on.

So using localhost or or the local machine name, may all very well
work on the stand alone machine in front of you, but it isn't going to work for
any remote machine.

dbServer = ""

This might very well work, but the IP address is more likely to change than the
machine name.

dbServer = "Windows-2l0igcp"

Try this one . . . . . and you stand a better chance !!
