I’m frustrated

When setting up the linked server I get error for invalid username or password, but I can log into SF with the same credentials

I am setting up the linked server per the pdf instructions. When I click OK, I get an error for invalid username, password, security token, etc.

- I am trying to connect to a sandbox (
- I can log into the sandbox using the same username and PW that I am trying to
use for the linked server - it has SA permissions in the sandbox
- I had the linked server successfully working under my 30 day trial
- I put in the new license, and refreshed my sandbox when the trial expired

That's when it stopped working. I have tried re-creating the linked server, and get username/pw errors

Is there a setting in the sandbox I should be checking?
