Hi

when I'm trying to use the remote computers to access the Database Name, I get the following error

"Unable to connect to server "PastelServer\SQLEXPRESS". Reason:[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

I don't know what else that could be the problem.

Please Assist, thanks.

Could be a number of things; this article has step by step instructions to diagnose and fix; take a look: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sql_protocols/archive/2006/09/30/sql-server-2005-remote-connectivity-issue-troubleshooting.aspx
