How to check encryption of username and password


I have created a new connection to connect to the database SQL Server 2000 and its successful. i am able to do all kind of transactions with the new connection.

Now my question is how would i check that my username and password is getting encrypted while connecting to the database. how to check and where to check this?

Thanks in Advnace,

Are you attempting to determine whether your credentials are encrypted “on the wire” while being transmitted? If so, you would need to analyze the packets using a tool like Ethreal.
