I would appreciate if anyone can provide any suggestion to my simple issue. I was trying to set up SQL Server 2005 Express as a database server (connecting by a couple of computers). After many researches, I finally can connect to Express remotely from other computer via SSMS manually. However, if I was trying to connect it from my application. I got timeout error. In both approaches, I am using a new user account that I created on the server. Here is my connecting string:
I have gone through steps to set up Express to support remotely connection. I believe this must be a simple question and I just couldn't find the solution.
Thanks for your times and comment.
