Connecting Sharepoint 2013 to SQL 2012 Instance on another server

I'm setting up Sharepoint 2013.  I have it installed and trying to connect to an instance sql2k12\sharepoint and my sharepoint server is sharepoint1.  

I’m having an issue.   I can’t get pass this point when installing Sharepoint to an instance on another server.  If I turn off the firewall on the SQL Server it works fine and I can proceed.  

I’ve opened up ports on SQL Server already and they are:
1434 TCP
1434 UDP
2382 TCP
135 TCP
4022 TCP
1433 TCP
443 TCP
80 TCP
2383 TCP

I’m getting an Event id 5586 Error every time I try to connect to that from the screen below it seems: (description below)
Unknown SQL Exception 10060 occurred. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing 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: TCP Provider, error: 0 - A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.)

Again if I shut off the firewall I can proceed so is it some port blocking me, if so any ideas what it is?

Is the SQL Browser service running?  What if you add an inbound rule for the SQL Server program, rather than a port?  Are you sure it's running on the default port?
