Check your port setting.
Can't create tci/ip socket (10050

I would rather use MSDE :)

o.k figure it out. Sorry not from the link to your tutorial but from your comment... sorta  "Check your port setting."

went back to networking 101
1) did everything right ? yes
2) what is the problem ? "can't connect"
3) port, sockets ? "nah"
4) did i mention everything ? "nah"
5) what did i forget to mention ? ***McAfee !
6) Shutdown McAFee Virus & Firewall and ...   Viola! It work !
