The principle is probably the same. The account that executes your code (e.g. the DTS package in SQL Server) doesn't have permissions to access the remote database.

Can you provide more info about your setup? E.g. which servers are involved, the accounts they run under, the way you configured the DTS package, whether your "LIVE code" is in the same network or not etc etc.

You may want to take a look at this article: http://Imar.Spaanjaars.Com/QuickDocID.aspx?QUICKDOC=263 and see if it helps you understand more about security and context so you can figure out what the problem is.
