Is there any other than the following is/are required to connect 2 servers, sql 2008 r2 to 2016? :
> TCPIP check

> same network check
> account and services check
> allowing remote access / login check
> sql browser on check
> agent running check
> local and/or AD accounts match and check
> sql admin account check
still getting the error 10054, some message on connection is established but the host has refused.. or something like that.
Any ideas guys?
