Can someone please explain the differences regarding the various connection methods available for SQL Server (2005 and 2008 specifically)

I've seen the Wikipedia stuff, so please no links to content of that nature

I'm more interested in things like why I should choose one method over another, for exampe - or are there any drawbacks to enabling ALL of them, etc etc. What are the advantages/disadvantages of doing these things?

There are no advantages/disadvantages other than the obvious ones.. TCP/IP can be accessible to the public with all the security concerns that brings, can be impacted by LAN performance and so on.. Shared memory is for internal use, and so on.. Just different protocolls and surfaces.

And as with everything else, enable only what you will use.


I find this short article to be "all you need...", atleast for the basics of choosing.
