SQL Server Remote Logon Error

I am trying to use SQL Server management studio v17.6 to connect to a remote SQL Server 2008 database.  I'm getting this error.

Not sure what I need to install in order to connect?  I've searched Google, tried numerous suggestions, but no luck.  I'm including additional information from the client machine below.

Try to turn out to be some SQL service was stopped somehow on server. Restarting SQL Server service manually was the solution.
Also you can open Management Studio - > Right click on instance -> go to properties -> select Security - Under Server Authentication, check SQL Server and Windows Authentication Mode - hit OK

Restart the server using configuration manager.

Thx, Misha.  I should note all changes would have to be on the client side.  I don't have access to do anything at the server.

Check if isn't the TLS issue. Your old server might using TLS 1.0 instead of TLS 1.1 or 1.2. Follow this MSDN article to see how to fix it.
