remote access to sql database using xp home edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!
    I've a database on a computer with xp professional edition OS.
    Now I want to access remotely to the database from others machines.
    Everything works fine except for one, the one that has a xp home edition OS. When tries to connect it gives the error 26 saying that probably the server doesn't allow remote connections.
    Is it possibly to do that from a xp home edition machine? Or that's the problem?
    Thanks in advance,

  • Solved!
    Somehow he could find all the sql servers/instances names on the network but when try to connect using server name it fails. Connecting using the ip machine works.
