I installed a new Windows Server 2008 with a fresh install of SQL Server 2008.  I cannot connect to SQL Server from a remote workstation.  I "believe" that I have configured SQL Server for port 1433 and have opened port 1433 on the Windows Server firewall.  However, both Windows 2008 and SQL 2008 have such different UIs from my previous servers that it is possible I may have missed something that might otherwise be considered obvious.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks
