Cannot connect to MSSQL on TCP 1433

osql -E fails, so then I tried to do telnet localhost 1433, and that fails as well.

No firewall in place.

A piece of custom software runs on this machine and is able to access MSSQL server.

My goal is to be able to run osql to do backups from a script.

How do I fix the osql / telnet 1433 connectivity problem?

Equipment: W2k3 SBS R2 Server (non-premium), SQL Server 2005 with Management Studio Express.

I am not sure whether sql 2005 supports OSQL, you have to use sqlcmd utility

If the is SQL Server 2005 Express - TCP/IP is disabled by default.  You have to go in an enable TCP/IP before you can use that protocol to connect.

Mixed mode. Tried user / pass, no joy.
sqlcmd is giving me the same problem...probably because telnet cannot connect to it either.
wilje: Please confirm how I enable TCPIP.

hi Dr,

Why don't you just load up SQL Schedule from lazycoding.com and let that do your backups? It's a free scheduler and works great with SQL Express

You use the surface area configuration tool - navigate to the network section and enable TCP/IP.
