Hello,

We have a network with different subnets at work. PCs are on the client subnets and some servers are on the server subnet. I am unable to connect to the servers on the server subnets using SQL Server Management Studio.

I have narrowed the issue down to a problem with the Windows Firewall on the the particular server which needs to have a particular port open by switching the Windows Firewall off. When I do so I can connect to the server using Management Studio.

My question is quite simply; which port on the server needs to be opened inn order to allow connections from Management Studio from client PCs?

Thanks for your help.

To answer my own question, I needed to configure the Windows Firewall to allow access via port 1433. The solution can be found here:
