How to connect to SQL Server 2000 using Query Analyser?

To connect to your Microsoft SQL Server 2000 database using the Query Analyser, you will need to follow the steps listed below:

  1. Open Query Analyzer.
  2. Goto to File -> Connect or (Ctrl-O).
  3. Type the server name and the port number (can be found in your hosting control panel) into the SQL Server text box.
  4. Check SQL Server Authentication.
  5. Type in the login name and password (can be found in your database activation email) into their respective textboxes.
  6. Click Ok

Note : Our Database Server is configured on port 25000. That's why in the Server Field of the Query Analyzer, you have to put the port Number by putting comma beside the SQLServer Name

Example : Db11.ASPWebHosting.com.au,25000 in the Server Field.
