ConnectionTransact error

I have an application that’s just started coming up with this error, apparently randomly – ConnectionTransact (TransactNamedPipe()).
Connection broken.
State:01000,Native:6,Origin:[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Named Pipes]
State:08S01,Native:4,Origin:[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Named Pipes] The odd thing is that I’m not using named pipes – I’m using tcp/ip. The only reference I can find elsewhere to this error suggests it’s a licencing problem, but I’m running sql server 2000 with a 1-processor licence so this shouldn’t be a problem. Anybody got any ideas? Thanks

Error is from one Work Station or all Work Station?

The program is a server application and only ever runs on one machine. I can’t make it happen on demand – there has to be a certain amount of activity.
