I am trying to install a local copy of SQL Server 2005.  I have sql server 2008 SMS installed on the client which connects to a SQL Server 2008 R2 database.  I name the database instance.  When i try to connect using Windows Authentication and also the name of the Database tthat I created I receive the below error:

"A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establshing a connection to SQL Server.  The server was not found or was not accessible.  Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Servder, Error : 1326)

Any idea how to fix?

Can you connect by IP address?  Also, is the local firewall set up to allow connections to the local SQL Server instance?

It seems likely either your firewall it's blocking the client or SQL Server isn't configured to use TCP/IP.
