I can not get bcp to work on my local machine for SQL Server 2005. I get the following error:
SQLState = 08001, NativeError = 2
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2].
SQLState = HYT00, NativeError = 0
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Login timeout expired
SQLState = 08001, NativeError = 2
Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]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.

I have tried to both use a trusted connection and provide a username/password combination.

I have changed the following settings so far:
- Enable remote connections
- Enable named pipes
- Start the SQL Server browser service

Is the server is running in mixed mode

Is  the server is configured to accept both local and remote connection

Yes, it is.

>> Is  the server is configured to accept both local and remote connection
Yes, but using named pipes only (no TCP/IP).

have you made sure the network adapter is configured for NETBIOS? (required for named pipes)
