    ...entered next button...
    The causes for this problems could be:
    1. The connection String.: Try replacing the '\' double slash with '' single slash.
    2. Make sure that the server is listeing on the port, you specified in the connection string.
    3. By default, SQL Server Express is not configured to allow remote connections. Make sure that the remote connections are allowed.
    4. Check the error log and provide the exact error details.
