This is my first time with SQL Server, so please forgive me if this is a ridiculous question:
I'm trying to create a DSN so I can connect up to SQL Server Express 2005 on my laptop/local machine. I'm attempting to connect via Windows NT authentication. I've tried 'Named Pipes' and TCP/IP settings but am not able to connect. I keep getting an error
SQL Server Error: 2
SQL Server Error: 17
SQL Server does not exist or access denied
Is the server created by just installing SQL Server 2005, or is there something additional I need to do? Any help would be much appreciated.
