I had sql server running, locally everything is working.

I want to connect another pc that will share my map folder and sql server.

My map folder is working perfectly on both pc except i cant connect to sql server on the remote pc.

I openned port 1433 for the sql server.

But doesnt work.

I tried to connect to the remote server using smss and it work. (I provided the ip, login and password)

Is smart assembly support tcp/ip connection for sql server on port 1433? If i disable shared memory access on the sql server, smart assembly doesnt run locally, it look like it work only using shared memory instead of tcp/ip

Is there any connection string to specify/force to use tcp/ip?

    I added 1433 to my connection string and it work.

    Here is my config if it can help someone.

    <Database ConnectionString="Data Source=\SmartAssembly,1433; Initial Catalog=smartassembly; User Id=sa; Password=password" DatabaseEngine="1" LastProject="{ae726256-376b-4c6a-80f4-505fef2a73cf}" MasterConnectionString="Data Source=\SmartAssembly,1433; Initial Catalog=master; User Id=sa; Password=password" Server="\SmartAssembly,1433" />
