0. make sure tcpip is enabled

1. Use 'ping server' to test the network.
2. Use 'telnet server 1433' to ensure that the SQL Server is listening
on the port.

3. Check the Net-Library protocol configured by using 'Client Network
Utility'
on the client. Are they supported by the SQL Server? If you use Named
Pipes,please try to change it to TCP/IP.

4. Add an entry in the hosts file on the
client machine.

you can try either of these solutions

1. Add an entry in the hosts file on the
client machine.
2. Check the Net-Library protocol configured by using 'Client Network
Utility'
on the client. Are they supported by the SQL Server? If you use Named
Pipes,please try to change it to TCP/IP.
3. Use 'ping server' to test the network.
4. Use 'telnet server 1433' to ensure that the SQL Server is listening
on the port.
5. Try again.

or

Change the dns server address form automatically to dedicated one(Network Connection>TCP/IP Protocol), then ping again

0. TCPIP and Named pipes are enabled
1. Can ping yes
2. Can not telnet to port 1433.

My SQL Server Agent is set to auto, but will not stay started.

Port was open, but for some reason SQL browers service was not started. Set to automatic, problem solved.
