    Talking Unanswered: Database Connection

    Please someone guide me how to make a connection from a different network / outside to the database server at my office.
    Do I need to configure anything at the server or my local PC?
    Thanks.

    The server needs to be ping-able, and on your PC you need to create an alias with the IP address of the server and whatever name you give it.

    You can kind of pick-and-choose between some of the answers available at KB#827422. This article is basically an overview of the TCP/IP connection process used by SQL Server, along with lots of troubleshooting information.
