Cannot connect to database. Providor Named Pipes Providor: 40
Posted on 2006-06-10
I get this error when I try and log into my SQL Server 2005 database:
"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: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)"
It was working fine two days ago...I'm pretty new to this any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
