hi to all,
for my website, i am trying to connect to the online DB from my local PC.
when i put the following connectionstring:Data Source=22.214.171.124; Initial Catalog=dbname;user id=dbuser; password=dbpass; Min Pool size=50;Packet Size=32767;Connect Timeout = 200;pooling='true'
126.96.36.199 is the server ip, the databse over the server is sqlexpress 2008. the connection string is working with no issues over the server.
i got the following error:
A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)
what is the problem here?
