    Hi all,
    I have installed SQL SERVER 2005 CTP,Version 9.00.1314 but the problem is...as soon as i m trying to connect..i gave the local server name as SHUCHI during the installation and now i m trying to connect to it... then it gives me error as :
    cannot connect to SHUCHI
    additional information: An error has occured while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005,this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.(provider:Named Pipes Provider,error:40-Could not open connection to SQL Server)(Microsoft SQL Server,Error:2)

    and i m not able to understand how to solve this problem...can someone PLEASEEEEEEEE help meeeee...

    thnksssssss in advance...

    Try enabling TCP/IP.

    Program Files ->
    Microsoft SQL Server 2005 ->
    Configuration Tools ->
    SQL Server Configuration Manager ->
    SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration ->
    Protocols for 2005 ->
    TCP/IP - properties, set to Enabled.
