I am running SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, on a Dell PowerEdge 2950 64 bit server.When I try to connect to the data in the database i recieve this error message:
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)
The Windows Firewall service isnt enable, I have allowed local and remote connections using both TCP/IP and Named Pipes and the SQL Server Browser is enabled. Any ideas why I still can't make the connection?
