Hi, Sorry if this looks a very basic question but I am bot getting how to do this. I have SQL Server running on my local pc and I want to connect to it from one fo my cloud application. I setup the inbound rules, allowed remote connectivity, set sql server authentication and then I tried to connect to it using <mylaptop_ip>,portname but I am unable too, it just get timed out while connecting from my cloud ip, I also read that using vpn we can do it but I really dont know how and I badly need this for my testing purposes. Please let me know the ways. Thanks in advance.
