I tried putting Address=ip before (and now) and still get the same error.
You are correct that I am trying to connect to MS SQL Server.
According to the documentation you sent, the meaning of "Server" is:
Hostname of a server. Used in an ODBC-only configuration. To specify
a Microsoft SQL Server instance, use the form server\instance.
I don't understand "server\instance". I tried a combination of
servername/server/address, but no go. Very odd to me.
