- Make sure your windows firewall is either not enabled or if enabled, allows TCP traffic on port 1433 (or whatever port is being used). This assumes of course that your sql servers are not "named instances." Express edition if I'm not mistaken installs as a named instance. Also, your sql browser service uses UDP on port 1434 so maybe you can check that out, however, I don't think its needed for the default instance.

- Make sure if you have a segmented network, nothing is getting blocked by your internal routers. You can test for instance by doing "ping 172.17.15.100" from your client PC at a command prompt.

Ok thats it I'm outta ideas!
