I want to connect to SQL Server 2008 with SQL Management Studio. The server is using 64 bit Windows Server 2008. I have the Firewalls turned off on the server and the remote machine. From a local machine on the network, I can connect fine (192.168.x.x). However, from a remote machine, I cannot connect to the SQL database. Remote connections are turned on (and connections work from the same network).
I suspect there is a problem with connecting to port 1433. I have tried to telnet to port 1433 and it does not connect. Once again, telneting on the internal network from a desktop to the server works. I have disabled wirefalls, put in port 1433 exceptions...etc.
