Question concerning the account credentials

edited October 16, 2008 12:13PM in SQL Monitor Previous Versions

I got a question concerning the account credentials to log in to the SQL server.

We installed the SQL Response software on a pc (where we have full administrator rights) and where we can connect without any problems to the SQL Server instance on a server (thru SQL Server authentication) but the software also need a user to connect to the SQL server and here lies the problem. We aren’t administrator of that server so the hosting company is going to create a user for us on that server but now they have asked us what kind of rights they need to give to this user and what kind of protocol(s) SQL Response uses to connect so they can open the necessary ports on their firewall as well.

Thanks in advance,
