Trying to log onto db server via SSMS and get error message:


"Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operaton or the server is not responding."

I get this message when trying to log onto the db from SSMS from my own PC or running application code in Visual Studio (against a db on that db server) from my PC.  However, if I go to the server's desktop then I can run SSMS and successfully connect to the db server in SSMS.

Ideas?

Started SQL Server BROWSER service and now I can connect to the db server locally from my PC, but my co-worker cannot from his PC.
