Your client configuration is set to use the Named Pipes protocol. The source server can not "see" the destination server using the Named Pipes protocol.
I'd suggest that you use the SQL Client Configuration utility (on the source server) to change the default client protocol. I'd suggest changing to TCP/IP, but there may be other, more productive choices.
Please post DDL at the very least, and DML when possible to make it easier for people to help you.
Please reply only via newsgroups, as I rarely reply to email.
