If i am right in understanding your problem, your sql server is on other machine and you are accessing it through your application on your machine... Right???

First check if your server is pinging through the machine where your are accessing.

Check that in
SQL Server Configuration Manager
--> Protocols for SQL
--> TCP/IP Enabled

Also check whether the server IP is displayed in SQL native client configuration Aliases

I think this might solve your issue.
