Ok, instead of "restart" I "stopped" and then "started" sql service
and now I am not able to connect from my local machine.
Not sure about diffrence between "restart" and "Stop + Start"
There should be no difference. The "Restart" button in the SQL Configuration Manager and Services MMC is just a GUI feature that does a "Stop" service operation immediately followed by a "Start" service operation.
