Create a smal testing environment for MS SQL 2008 in LAN
Posted on 2009-04-21
I want to create a smal testing environment for myself in my local area network. I have installed MS SQL server 2008 (Trial) on one computer in my network. I will install a DB on this server. On another computer in the LAN I wish to connect to the server. The computer with the MS SQL server is running Vista and the other computer XP.
I am a programmer, but not a server-guy. Please give me some links or instructions how to do it. Firewall issues? How to connect? I have not changed anything in the installation wizard for MS SQL 2008.
I have so far only connected an Access database to a local My SQL server.
