I’ve been getting the following message when connecting my SQL Server database to the ASP.NET application: "Login failed because, under default settings, SQL Server 2000 does not allow remote connections." What might this mean?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

By default SQL Server 2005 and above is not enable for remote connections.

In SQL Server 2005 you use the Surface Area Configuration to enable remote access.

In SQL Server 2008 you use the Configuration Manager to enable remote access.
