How are you trying to connect to SQL Server?  If in code, what language?

using microsoft management studio

what is the entire error?
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

I assume the error is because of Incorrect Named Pipes Configuration in network protocols.

If your remote server is not in your local network, then you will get this connectivity issue.

Try using TCP/IP as networking protocol in Surface Area Configuration Manager and try it again.
Make sure you add a windows Firewall exception for port 1433.

A connection was successfully established, but during the login process has an error
(provider: Named Pipes Provider,  
error: 0 - No process is on the other end of the pipe.) (Microsoft SQL  
 Server, Error: 233)
