Error "SQL Server does not allow remote connections"

I just deployed my new ASP.NET (3.5 FW) site to the hosting company I'm
using, webhost4life.

NOTE: I HAVE deployed other SQL Server sites to the same account with no
issues.

Now I'm getting this error. Any idea why?

By default SQl2005 does not accept remote connections e.g when they are made
with remote IP (not with local IP address). E.g first check that you have
correct IP.

This remote connection allowing is configured with SQL Server's Surface
Area configuration tool (there are selections Local connections Only/Local
and remote connections). In case this isn't something you can control, I
suggest you contact your host

the error means that connection to the sqlserver could not be made (name
resolution or socket open failed). assuming the sqlserver is configured,
either you have the connection string wrong (name and port number) or the
network is blocking the connection (firewall rules).

From error "...provide r: Named Pipes Provider" I understand that you using
Named Pipes protocol and not TCP/IP.

Named pipes protocol works well only in Domain environment.
It has embedded NT authentication. So if guest account disabled on the
server then Named pipes connection will be refused.

You need to switch it to TCP/IP
Try to add "Network Library=DBMSSOC N" to your connection string
"Data Source=190.190. 200.100,1433;Ne twork Library=DBMSSOC N;Initial
Catalog=myDataB ase;User ID=myUsername;P assword=myPassw ord;"

Is this wierd? Any more ideas?

Hello Cirene,

I have had similar experience with 1and1.com.

I had a hosting account with them and decided to connect my application that
was hosted somewhere else to the sql server database i have with them.

The application could not connect to the sql server db. Some hosting may
require that your application be hosted on their enviroment before you can
access the sql server database.

You can also check how you're managing the roles. Are you using an attached
database to manage the roles? If yes, you have to grant ASP.NET access to the
folder containing the database file.

Thank you,
Okoronkwo Alfred Chinedu

Is this wierd? Any more ideas?

Thanks!

the error means that connection to the sqlserver could not be made (name
resolution or socket open failed). assuming the sqlserver is configured,
either you have the connection string wrong (name and port number) or the
network is blocking the connection (firewall rules).
