My actual problem is this Runtime error on my application:

"An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)"

I have gone through lots of instructions and steps:
>ask your ISP to enable TCP/IP to allow remote connections on the SQL2K5 server
>ISP (webprovider): Please run the below command and paste us the result.
telnet 1433
>Telnet can't connect to this IP
>ISP (web provider): Some ISPs block outgoing port 1433, please contact your ISP and ask them to open the port for you.
>ISP2 (Internet Provider): We do not block anything. It depends on your local computer's settings. Or you may call Microsoft ...
...Now I don't know what to do? Any hints or help please?
