Hi all,

I am trying to allow sql remote connections to SQL Express 2005.

Now if I turn off the windows firewall I can connect successfully, However when I turn on the public profile settings it stops any connection being made.

I've added UDP port 1434 and TCP port 1433 to be allowed as both incomgin and outgoing ruls on the fire wall.

However when I try to connect through VS im getting the 40 error, saying the server doesnt exist?

Any ideas?

Do you have more SQL Server instances in that server?
And are you sure that instance is listening on 1433?

Thanks for the replies guys,

Vitor,

Yes there is an instance of SQL Server 2008 running on the server as well. How do I identify theport thats being used on the instance?

(As far as I was aware 1434 UDP redirected to the correct instance? am I wrong?)

The 1433 and 1434 are used by default for the first installed instance but you can confirm it in SQL Server Configuration Manager by checking in the TCP/IP properties of the instance.

Just a warning. If the server is behind a firewall you won't want to set a dynamic port for that instance because after each reboot it may use a different port so it's better you chose a static port.
