After windows 10 upgrade, I am not able to connect to SQL Server.
Question: Could you please help me to make sure the fire wall 1) turned on and 2) it has correct settings?
I am reading: "... If a firewall is turned on but not correctly configured, attempts to connect to SQL Server might be blocked."
"As an alternative to configuring SQL Server to listen on a fixed port and opening the port, you can list the SQL Server executable (Sqlservr.exe) as an exception to the blocked programs. Use this method when you want to continue to use dynamic ports. Only one instance of SQL Server can be accessed in this way."
We can apply easiest method which helps connect to database engine because this database is for practice purpose and doesn't contain any critical data.
