I am having a problem setting up a development environment on my lap top.  I have MSSQL 2005 and coldfusion 8 (developer) installed and when I try to setup a data source to a database named ATC, I get....

Connection verification failed for data source: ATC
java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver]Error establishing socket to host and port: gw03828:1433. Reason: Connection refused: connect
The root cause was that: java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver]Error establishing socket to host and port: gw03828:1433. Reason: Connection refused: connect

The SQL instance is the default instance and I am referencing it by the machine name GW03828 and wondered if there might be a problem with that.  I also created a login that I know had all the necessary permissions and this failed as did SA.
