I get "SQL Server does not exist or access is denied" error when I tried to connect to MS SQL database on your server?

This error indicates that Enterprise Manager or Query Analyzer cannot make a connection the remote SQL server.

Check the followings Make sure you are using MS SQL Enterprise Manager 2000. SQL 7.0 Enterprise Manager is not compatible.

  • Make sure TCP/IP is select as the connection protocol
  • Make sure your firewall or router is not blocking port 25000

Note : Our Database Server is configured to listen on port 25000. So please make sure that you configure your database client software to connect to port 25000.

Please check another Knowledge Base article on how to use Query Analyzer to connect to database.

If you continue to have problem, please contact technical support.
