Trying to create an "Add Connection" in Visual Studio 2010 Server Explorer

  1. Hi,

    I'm trying to connect to the Winhost database server on Winhost by creating a new connection in Visual Studio 2010 Server Explorer. When I test the connection I receive the error "Login failed".

    I can give you more information but to start I will tell you I am using as the Server Name. Then I am using SQL Authentication and I am using the same database name and password I use when logging into SSMS. I even tried putting as the server name but receive the same error when testing. Login failed.

    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advanced.

    Check to see if your firewall/antivirus software may be blocking the connection.

  3. Is there a port I should allow access to?

    Make sure port 1433 and/or 14330 are open on your end.
