Running Small Business Server 2012 Essentials I have 5 users on this domain
I just added a second server, Windows Server 2008 R2, server was added to domain
Small Business Server 2012 Essentials is hosting a database called Alarm7
I'm trying to get a Web Client add-on to connect to this Alarm 7 database
I can browse to this database from the server 2008 just fine which tells me the ports are all properly open

I can run the web client from Small Business Server 2012 Essentials but I cannot connect with it from the Server 2008.

Alarm7 support is lost here. Is there something I need to do in Small Business Server 2012 Essentials?

any suggestions?
Thanks

I am a bit lost:
You said "I can browse to this database from the server 2008" and then also "but I cannot connect with it from the Server 2008 with web client"
So can you connect with the web client from 2012 directly?

Thanks David,
I tried to open inbound port 1433 tcp but I still get an error when I try to lunch the client web app. I get "File CWSYSTEM could not be opened. Error: Database server not found (080001) Press ok to end this application"

Thanks for trying, could not get it to work, I moved the database instead of wasting to much time on this
