I have succesfully installed MSDE on a Windows server. The service is running, and I can create and test an ODBC onnection to it, so I think that I am set that way.

What I would like to do next is to connect to that MSDE remotely from Enterprise Manager.

I have already run the srvnetcn.exe to allow remote TCPIP connections.

When I try to register the SQL server, I am using the IP address of the serverr and am using that same username/password credentials that worked in the ODBC manager.

Can anyone help?

Thank you,
