I'm trying to connect to a SQL server via IP address.  I keep getting the error in the screenshot.  I also have a screenshot showing my Firewall rule, and my IP settings in my registry.  Any ideas on how I can connect?

My remote server shows this in the security event logs on the server I'm trying to connect to



The Windows Filtering Platform has blocked a packet.

Application Information:
      Process ID:            0

There is an problem with your configurations.
go to start>program>sql server>configuration manager in which you will find tcp/ip..
