Can't login with remote servers

Microsoft SQL Server

Able to connect just fine at the main server but when trying to get the other
servers to connect get the following error.

Using SQL Server 2005 Express Edition:

Connection Failed:
SQLState: '01000'
SQL Server Error: 11004
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP/IP Sockets]ConnectionOpen (Connect()).
Connection Failed:
SQLState: '08001'
SQL Server Error: 6
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP/IP Sockets]Specified SQL server not

Any ideas why I would be getting this error? All information is correct
according to where it is in the first server.

times. Check back here if you don't find the answer(s).

Where is the archive located?

I should also mention that mixed authentication is selected and the remote
servers still can not connect.
I found which show the same error I'm
having but when I go through the steps for the workaround it still doesn't

Anyone else have any other ideas?
This thread had an answer that seems to work for now.
