Unanswered: Connecting to SQL Server 2000 Named Instances
I have the following problem;
I fully understand that to connect to a named instance of SQL Server you need to use the ServerName\SQLInstanceName. The problem I have is that I have a SQL Server in a different zone. I can connect to the Default instance by IP Address or the ServerName.zone.domain.org. (e.g. MySQLServer.zone1.mydomain.org).
However, the same thing does not work for the Named Instance. It seems to be named instance or nothing.
How can I connect to this named instance across network zones?
