  • SQL Authentication works!!! Any idea why Windows wouldnt?

  • Did you choose on the installation process (one of the first steps, named Server Authentication) Sql Server and Windows Authentication Mode?

  • Hello,

    Have you configured Windows Firewall or any other security software to allow SQL Server access? Could you try disable any security software.


    Hope this helps.

  • Alberto,

    But by default Windows Firewall would not be interfere with one local connection, same physical machine, same default instance.
