You also have to have a 'listener' on the target machine.  Port 1434 is usually used by 'sqlbrowser.exe' which receives requests for named instances of SQL Server.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

That would depend on which firewall you had now wouldn't it?

sorry, it took so long to post.  I followed the first article in the first post and added a rule to allow UDP port 1434.  When I telnet to it, it fails.

I need the port open for a program that was just installed that uses SQL.

What else needs to be done?

You probably need to install the SQL Native Client or Microsoft ODBC driver which includes the client code to connect to the 'sqlbrowser.exe' program on the SQL Server machine.

That's because you didn't give attention on that article. It teaches how to block a port and not how to allow it. Check the article I've provided and you'll should be able to allow traffic on port 1434.

I understand, however, I 'allowed" it.

When I run a port scan on the server that currently has the program running.  It lists many 1433.  However on the new server is does not list any.

Meaning that or you don't have SQL Server installed/started or it's installed and running but listening in a different port (named instances doesn't listening on 1433).
