I don't make it to connect to my Instance (Sql 2005 express) in my VM Ware Virtual Machine.
Firewalls are switched off. I can ping both machines host to vm and vm to host.
TCP/IP is enabled on the vm. Dynamic ports was set to 1122??! (why this port??)
I played with 1433 and 0 but that did not help.
Any Idea?

dynamic ports will choose some random (free) port
 -> the sql browser service will need to run in that case

I started the browser and: it worked! Thanks.
Once I learned that the browser is only need for linked servers.
So I learned something new today.

btw: When browsing servers when logging in into management studio, I can see servers available. Why can't I see my VM SQL Server? The browser is running, ok; and I can connect, but I expected the server to be listed, although it is an express edition.

the listing is something I don't really like, as it uses some special windows API to broadcast the requests...
for the VM, it is eventually not handling the broadcasts on the network level, hence won't respond on the os level to list the sql server...
