Hello,

I Installed SQL Server 2005 standard edition on my server named : SRV-DPS. The instance name was let as default. Then  created a database named : LocToyota. On the server no problem. I can connect to the server in both mode : Windows Authentification and Sql authentification.

The problem is I can't connect to the server from another computer.

I can ping the server. It answers fine.

I join some screenshots.

Thanks for your help.

Make sure you turned off the firewall, or if it passes traffic on port 1433

In SQL Server configuration Manager ensure that the SQL Server Browser service is running under SQL Server 2005 Services.

In SQL Server Surface Area Configuration, click on Surface Area Configuration for Services and Connections, Click on Remote Connections under Database Engine and ensure that Local and Remote connections is selected.

In SQL Server Management Studio right click the SQL Server name and click Properties. Click Connections and Ensure under Remote Server Connections, the Allow Remote Connection to this server setting is checked.
Hello:
Remote connection are disabled by default on Sql Server. Use SQL Server Surface Area Configuration as suggested by jacko72 and enable remote connections to the server.
Best regards.
