MSsql SA user with blank password verification

Hi All,
for a client of mine im doing a security auditing. I
ran Sql recon in his lan. the tool reported that many
servers has Blank Sa password version of sql 8.00.194 so I
fired up tsql from linux and issued the command:
tsql -S -p 1433 -U SA
Local carser is Ansi_x3.4.-1968
Password: ( I just pressed enter here)
so I get in return:
server is unavailabe or does not exist.
There was a problem connecting to the server
whats the problem? shouldnt I be able to login without
a password?
