Connection Failed SQL State 08001 SQL Server Error 10061 SQL Native Client TCP Provider No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

Errant SQL Native Client Datasource - Apparently this is a fairly common problem and I am seeing several resolutions to it.  This issue started for our company long before I started working here.  We are not allowing remote connections.  The SQL server and the JDE enterprise server are on the same subnet.  Users are on a different subnet.  The SQL Server gets this message trying to connect to the JDE Enterprise server:  

Connection Failed: SQL State '08001': SQL Server Error 10061: Microsoft SQL Native Client TCP Provider: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.  

I have tried many suggested solutions and am getting no where. All assistance is appreciated. Thank you, BoPeep
