Is your server configured to accept TCP/IP traffic? Is your server configured to allow SQL Server authentication? Is there any sort of firewall between your application and the server? Is the server running?
OK, so is your server configured to accept TCP/IP traffic?
What you mean by firewall between application and server???
Just that - are these any firewalls between whatever machine your application runs on and whatever machine your SQL Server instance lives on.
Also, is your SQL Server 2000 instance patched to the latest version? Very (very!) early versions of SQL Server 2000 had issues with TCP/IP DLLs missbehaving.

1. I have checked, both Server network utility and client network untility for TCP/IP port(its 1433).
2. I have turned off the wirefall.
3. Allowed exception for Port 1433(giving Name as "1433" , Port number as "1433" )
4. Now my server is not in Network , so i tried to launch the application from inside the server itself.
