Hi,

I am trying to connect to a SQL Server 2008 R2 DB from my local system on the same network but not able to.  I can log into the SQL server using windows authentication or SQL Server Authentication (sa account ) no problem.  I

I tried to connect to my the server using SQL using a db connection in Visual studio but no luck:
Data source: Microsoft SQL Server (SQL Cliet)
Server Name: svrParts-01 or 192.168.1.5:1433
Use SQL Authetication: sa and password
connect to database: dbParts
Test Connection message: The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify instance name is correct and that SQL server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error 25 - Connection string is not valid).

or

An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server when connecting to SQL server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under default settings SQL server does not allow remote connection. ( provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 – could not open a connection to SQL server. )

Thanks in advance!

The firewall looks odd. Turn off the firewall just to test. If that works, put the right ip addresses in there.
