And i'm connecting from my local PC to either Server through Enterprise manager.
MS SQL Server of Server1 is giving Timeout.
Any network settings in MS SQL server going wrong?
1. Add the server using the Client Network Utility under Microsoft SQL Server. Add the servername u want to use, if you have the IP address of the server add it in. Go under alias -> TCP/IP or if the server is local go alias -> Named pipes
2. Also you could try adding the server name and the ipaddress in the hosts file under 'C:\Winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts'.
For eg: 1x.xx.x.xx SERVERNAME
