SQLEXPRESS - Network Connection Issue
This information applies to :
September 5, 2006
My Laptop can not connect to my network/desktop QuoteWerks that has been rehosted to SQL Express 2005.
By default SQL 2005 does not have TCP/IP connectivity enabled after the installation.
To enable TCP/IP connectivity go to Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft SQL Server 2005 -> Configuration Tools -> SQL Server Configuration Manager. Under SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration, click on Protocols for SQLEXPRESS, click on TCP/IP, and enable it. You'll then have to restart the instance, which you can do from the Configuration Manager under the SQL Server 2005 Services area.
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express can be downloaded from Microsoft's Website.
