SQL2005 - don't see my database when I use VPN-connection

Situation: at work we have a windows 2003 server with MS sql server
2005 express. With my pc at work, I can see my own database I created.
At home. I can connect with VPN to the network. With extern desktop I
can see the database and do everything. Now I want to create a login
with visual web developer 2005 express. But when I try to login with
sql server authentication I don't see any database. When I try windows
authentication, I have connection with the master, model, msdb and
tempdb but not my own database. I am very sure at work I could create
the login and the permissions were OK.

Thanks

As i know this is one of the restrictions in Express Editions - you can
connect to local or remote servers, but with the tools in Express versions
you can only manage local databases.

I installed 2005 clients a few months ago (using servers on
my employer's network through VPN), and just recently
installed Express on my home machine. Should I expect
any issues using that? So far, I haven't had any problems
connecting Management Studio to either servers on the
network, or to the local Express installation. Will any
limitations on SQL Express cause problems?

Thanks,
Jim

The limitations are in Visual Web Developer Express and have nothing to do
with your local SQL Express or Management Studio. If you want to manage a
remore server from within Web Developer you have to buy Web Developer Pro.

We are in the early (development test) stages of upgrading from SQL200 to SQL2005. We have noticed that our backups, created with the append option, are not stored as individual .bak files when viewed through Windows Explorer. From time to time, we have to create disk space by deleting backup files. How is this managed in SQL2005?

Now I'm being asked to make my app portable to other networks/companies. So I want to create a setup program on CD/DVD.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
