The SQL Server is a Microsoft SBS 2003 server. Very light duty.

Running "netstat -na" on the clients shows a whole lot of tcp ip ports in TIME_WAIT mode. I strongly suspect that the clients are running out of ports to use. Note: TCPIP ports are NOT directly interrelated with connection pooling in the ODBC driver -- I've lost the web reference to this, though.

This hasn't solved the problem.
