Am I right in believing that although the Multiprotocol
net library available with SQL2K supports encryption,
SQL2K itself does not actually use that encryption even
if it is turned on in the Server Network Utility?
When I selected multiprotocol and enabled encryption,
everything worked, except that the traffic across the
network was not encrypted.

Therefore, is it correct that the only encryption
available with SQL2K (as opposed to SQL 7) is SSL based
and therefore needs a server certificate?
