Help connecting


  • LAPTOP 1: I have a windows 10 pro laptop running sql server 2016 Enterprise. It is connected to the internet by tethered cell phone. It is running Connectify.

    LAPTOP 2: My other laptop is running Windows home and is connected to the internet by connecting to  LAPTOP 1's Connectify WIFI. I am trying to connect the the Database server on LAPTOP 1 from SSMS on LAPTOP 2. I can ping LAPTOP 1 from LAPTOP 2. But no luck connecting to the database server. I created a sysadmin sql user and am using that to try to connect.  Any ideas?
