i moved sql database from old machine to new windows server 2012 by attaching it then i created access to database using Windows authentication and SQL authentication

i checked access to database using Windows authentication and i log in without user and pass and its ok
for SQL authentication i am login with user sa and its also ok

now i am trying to connect from outside the network to this database using system information and i set the following:

changed in the router to assign SQL port 2433 to the new machine 192.168.1.137
changed the IP for this machine to 192.168.1.137
in the configuration file of the software that i am trying to connct from i put the user and the new password

what could be the reason that i am unable to connect? what actions can i take to find the reason

Thanks

Did you set the SQL server to use port 2433?  That is not the default port, unless that's a typo  in your post and you're actually setting it to 1433.

Port 1433 is the default port for the SQL Server Default Instance.

If you want to change it from the default, or if you are using a named instance behind a firewall (named instances use dynamic ports by default - if you need to open a firewall port then you need to configure a dedicated port).  This is setup using SQL Server Configuration Manager.

This is described in the SQL Server Documentation here:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177440%28v=sql.100%29.aspx

While you're at it, also check to see if Windows Firewall is running on the server.  If it is, you'll also need to allow traffic on the port you want to use.

I am unfortunately not 100% up to speed on settings this up.

On a named instance I have that's using a non default port, we removed the 0 in Dynamic ports and installed the port we wanted for all of the local loopback (127.0.0.1) in IP2, the server IP address in IP1 and under IPAll as well.

Double check your settings and try that as well ?

Also, make sure to check the Windows Firewall on the server - if its on, make sure that port is open.

OK its working with port 2433 but inside the network, connecting from outside the network to the external ip of the network with port 2433 its not able to connect

i forward port 2433 to the machine 192.168.1.137 in the router but still can not connect
firewall is off now

what action i can take?

Thanks

Once you've reach past the talking to SQL Server (which you say is working internally) you're getting into Network specifics, which I'm afraid is way outside my level of expertise.

Your router or the server should have some logs showing the rejected connection attempts and maybe they can show you something there, but I'm afraid networking is not area of expertise.
