Hi Experts,

I am trying to mirror a SQL 2005 database to another SQL 2005 server offsite, I have configured the security wizard which completes fine but when I go to start mirroring the attached error is displayed.

I've checked netstat -an |find /i "listening" and found that the 5022 port is open and have opened the relevant port on the firewalls at each site so I'm not sure why its not working.
