Issues moving Business Contact Manager Database (2007)

Just like to say, we attempted this today. We backed up the database from the orginal server, created a new DB on the new server using the BCM DB Tool, restored the database and shared the database, however, clients cannot connect to the database. It's a SQL 2005 named instance (SQLEXPRESS). Connecting to the database from BCM we are using the string server\sqlexpress, no go. No firewalls or anything in the way,

Any ideas?

use the sql2005 Surface Area Configuration utility to ensure remote connections are enabled to the instance

Can I just add to this, this didn't actually fix the problem. We still cannot connect to the DB.
