remote connection an SQL server from vB?
 
hi
i added 2 databases to my SQL server on a machine next door using Microsoft SQL server management studio express... I made sure that the server allows remote connection

then from this computer i pass a connection string to my SQLCLient in VB2005 that looks a bit like this

Code: ( text )
ConnString = "Server=USER-PTDH8Z5ESH\SQLEXPRESS;Database=FSS.MDB;Trusted_Con nection=True;User Instance=True"



for which it gives me this error when i open the connection
SQLConnecton.Open()

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.
