I have an SQL 2000 server behind a firewall. I have set the ports to be forward to this server. I would like to manage this server from home using enterprise manager. How can I accomplish this.

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

If you have assigned a public ip address to your SQL Server than just connect to it with the tools you have. You would need to connect to the ip address, not the machine name. If the SQL Server has a private ip then you will not be able to connect to it by simply opening the port.

    Not the most elegant solution, but if the SQL server is behind the firewall you could run Windows Terminal Server, PCAnywhere or even use a GotoMyPc type service. Connect to the actual server or another workstation that is setup with enterprice manager, I would recommend the latter.
