Create a throw-away project and do something like the following:

C#
try
{
    System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection con = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(myConnectionString);

    con.Open();
    con.Close();
    con.Dispose();
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    Console.WriteLine(ex.ToString());
    // or if you're using a forms app
    MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString());
}

Open in new window


If you see the message, then the connection failed. You should get an indication as to why from the message printed.

If you are referring to SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), then you can simply enter the appropriate details on the "Connect to Server" window (File->Connect Object Explorer).

Screenshot
Once you connect, if you cannot see the "Object Explorer," you can open by going to View->Object Explorer or by pressing the F8 key.
