Unable to connect to SQL Server instance

Connecting to SQL Server remotely requires the following:

  • Enable remote connections for the database through SSMS
  • Enable TCP/IP in SQL Server Network Configuration
  • Open the port (default 1433) in Windows Firewall inbound rules
  • SSMS on a remote computer may require the port specified (e.g. TURBOSERVER\turbo,1433)
  • Enable both Windows and SQL authentication for the server through SSMS
