On a brand new system (Win 10 in this case but hopefully not system specific), I've installed latest SQL Server and now I want to connect to it from local apps.
What steps must be taken to allow other apps on my PC to connect to a database?
So far I have:
- Ensured the
SQL Serverservice is running.
- Ensured port
1433is open in Inbound firewall rules.
These are both well documented elsewhere.
After installing telnet:
I still get:
C:\Users\Me>telnet localhost 1433 Connecting To localhost...Could not open connection to the host, on port 1433: Connect failed
This one always seems to take me so long to track down as it can be months/years between attempts.
