I have two servers set up for a dev environment, one will run code and the other will be dedicated DB. I have both servers running but I cannot get the dev server connected to the DB server over port 1433. I have set an allow rule on the db server for the connection over 1433, binding it to the public IP address of the dev server, but when I attempt a telnet from the dev server to the db server the connection fails.
There are no firewalls in play here other than Windows Firewall. I am not extremely with windows firewall configurations so I feel like I am overlooking a step somewhere.
I need help establishing the rule needed to allow communication between the two servers, through the windows firewall, over port 1433.
