Hi Guys,

How to allow remote connection in SQL Server?

My error message is here :

TITLE: Connect to Database Engine
------------------------------

Cannot connect to aslon-lt.

------------------------------
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the pre-login handshake.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 0 - No process is on the other end of the pipe.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 233)

For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?ProdName=Microsoft+SQL+Server&EvtSrc=MSSQLServer&EvtID=233&LinkId=20476

Check your Server Setting, weather Allow remote connection to this Server is checked or not.

Right Click on Server  -> Properties  -> Connections

If it is Un-checked, then checked this.

If still not able to connect remotely, then check the Port as default port 1433 there should be no problem, otherwise you have to specify the Port as well
Note: check your Port
