I am getting the following error when I try to access a database from a WInxp PC to a Windwos 2003 R2 32bit server.
"The database could not be accessed. In order to access this database, check your network connection and verify that your database server is available. It may be necessary to disable any firewall software..."
I have checked the basics like firewall, software versions, etc. Is it compatible

Here is a document with steps for resolving your sharing issue: Database could not be accessed
The most common causes are:
- Share is not enabled (1st in list)
- Need to add exclusions to Firewall (9th item in list)
- Need to change the PAD file to use the IP address instead of the host computer name (last in list)
If these do not resolve the issue, continue with the other steps listed.
