How to configured SQL server 2012 for local and remote connections


I have SQL 2012 installed on our network and the client PC connect to this server. The IT Software vendor has told that :
SQL Server must be configured for local and remote connections
(TCP/IP or TCP/IP and Named Pipes)

Can some one post me some tutorials to configure this.

This is the default for SQL 2012. It sets up the instance to grab a dynamic port. You shouldn't need to do anything.

You can check/set these settings in the "SQL Server Configuration Manager".  In the left-hand side, expand "SQL Server Network Configuration", then select the MSSQL instance you want to configure.  In the right-hand panel, you can enable/disable/configure Shared Memory, Named Pipes, and TCP/IP.
