I've inherited a SQL & ArcSDE / ArcGIS Server stack (SQL & ArcSDE on one machine, ArcGIS Server on a second).
I'm using the instructions here:

I can successfully create a connection is I DON'T use the direct connection syntax, and instead use just the port number (5151).  Please see the two images below. 
When I change the service field to use a direct connection string, all the sudden I get a bad login user error, even though I did not change the account credentials.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

This connection doesn't work... (failed to connect to the specified server. Bad login user).

This connection does work.
