When trying to connect to a MS SQL Server 7 on the same machine using

$linkId = mssql_connect($SqlHost,$SqlUser,$SqlPass)

I get the following error:

Warning:  MS SQL message:  Login failed for user '\'. (severity 14) in ... on line ...

I have tried to replace the variables with literals, changed the username/password settings in the DB to "" but still get the same message over an over.

I use PHP4.0.6 on NT4 with Apache over CGI.

Of course the username is not actually "\" but "intranetUser"

What do the MSSQL does say this message means?
