I am trying to setup a MSDE 2005 database for a blackberry server install. I have installed the MSDE 2005 database - BLACKBERRY - and have enabled both named pipes and tcp/ip. I enabled TCP/IP on local IPV4 - 192.168.90.2. I cannot connect to the database either locally on the host via port 1433 or from a remote client - i have checked that remote clients are enabled. I have also explicitly added 1433 to the firewall allowed ports. I have also tested with the firewall turned off but cannot connect. Any help is appreciated.
