Client will not connect to ODBC Data Source on host

Your post

I'm running FMServer 11 Advanced on a VM windows setup.  I am trying to connect to a Microsoft Sql Server 2005 data source on our network.  I have installed and configured the ODBC driver on the FM server and it successfully connects to the Sql server.  My problem is getting the client to connect.  When I attempt to setup the External Data Source it will not connect to the DSN.

I have successfully connected and I am currently running the same database on a Mac box running FMServer 9 using the Actual SQL Server ODBC Driver.  We are wanting to move all of our boxes to Windows VMs so I need to get this working it.

I've upload an image showing how one can see the DSN and the other cannot.  Any ideas?

Thanks!!!
