Connecting to SQL Server 2005 Remotely

Hi All,

Hopefully it a quick simple solution.

I have an instance of SQL Server 2005 running on the server as localhost/SQLEXPRESS2005.

I've enable remote connections ont he database and enabled TCP/IP on the configuration.

I've downloaded Port Query and run

TCP port 1433 (ms-sql-s service): NOT LISTENING
portqry.exe -n <server ip> -e 1433 -p TCP exits with return code 0x00000001.

The browser servies is running and windows firewall is currnetly off.

ANy ideas on what going one here?

You need to check in which port that instance is listening.

Hi flynny
Please confirm that the MSSQLServer service is running - use either Windows Services Console or SQL Server Configuration Manager
 SQL Server Configuration Manager will give you the Process ID if it is running.
You can also look in Task Manager for an entry for 'sqlservr.exe'

If it is running and you can get the Process ID, then you can use netstat command
netstat -ano | find "<process id>"

This will help you confirm if the MSSQLSERVER service is running or not and the process id and port details

In the same window you've configured the TCP/IP, right-click on TCP/IP and go to Properties then IP Addresses tab. You would confirm by TCP Port field which one the instance is using.

Barry,

First of all many thanks for your quick response.

- Please confirm that the MSSQLServer service is running - use either Windows Services Console or SQL Server

Thanks for your help, for some reason the SQL Server Agent Service had stopped running.

Once Again I appreciate you help.

Strange, since SQLExpress Edition doesn't has SQL Agent service.
