Connect To SQL Server 2005 Through Wireless Connection Between XP And

Feb 1, 2010

I have built a client-server inventory application for our company which connects to our Server machine running on Windows XP. We have 6 client machines running also on Windows XP that connects to the Server's database. Now, my problem is, "How do i connect a client machine running on Windows Vista to our Server running on Windows XP wirelessly?"

- Is there something I have to alter on the SQL Server Surface Area Configuration?

-Or do I have to change the 'Connection String' on my software application so as to properly connect to the Server from a Vista mahine? If then, how?

This is the error its throwing:"An error has occurred 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 a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 53)"

Way To Connect To A MySQL Server In Windows Using Dial-up Connection

Nov 6, 2011

I have a client that wants to connect to his MySQL database using Dial-up/Modem connection. All i know is a phone number. I will be using VB.NET 2005 for this project. We also have a LAN Connection setup to other computer, but some of this computer only uses Dial-up to connect. The LAN connection works fine because i can just use the Local IP to create a connection string.But my problem is how do i get to connect to a remote server using a Dial-up? I know building a connection string require an IP to connect. Do i need to get the IP after a dial-up connection is connected or to i need to use different approach? I have a server and i have 10+ clients, the server has a T1 connection + a dial-up modem installed also.I created a POS system to all the clients, Some clients uses dial-up some uses LAN. What the server do is all the records of the clients POS will be sync to one database on the server in one table. If i'm in the server and and i selected a station/client and click SYNC button all the records on that client will be sync to the server.

Connection's Current State Is Closed - Connect To Sql Server And Display A Record

Jun 21, 2010

I am a ASP Classic Programmer, professionally for a little over a year, I have developed some rather nice sites, including the one in my signature (Still a work in progress).

I have been forced to use ASP.NET (VB) for a FileUpload control, as it offers a self controlled way of creating Thumbnails, without the use of 3rd party controls, which is great, as my hosting server does not allow for 3rd party installs on their servers.

The code below is what I have so far for connecting to the database and displaying a record is the "cookie" exist on the users computer.

Unfortunantly, this is not working, and to be honest with you, their is not a whole lot of resources available to show how to do this correctly.

So I am stuck with a lot of post and hoping that someone can actually assist me with this and tell me what I am doing wrong and maybe correct my code.

I am getting an error about the "Connection is closed"

If you want to re-write my code, I prefer something simple and basic, as the only thing that I am doing to checking rather the user is logged in, and if so, display a record from the database. I am NOT in the need for the DataGrid, so please do not suggest it, as I am only needing to check this one thing.

I would like to also add, that I have successfully contect to my database with the FileUpload control and save file names of the images uploaded, so I know that my connection string is done properly> But, for some reason the "SELECT" statement is causing a HUGE issue. (It was easier to insert, than to select, I am not use to that)

What Kind Of Handheld Device / OS To Use To Interface With A Win Forms / SQL Server Express App

Oct 29, 2010

I'm currently working on an application using Win forms and SQL Server Express 2008. One of the major functions of our program is to generate work orders for field engineers. These engineers typically work in a factory and have to walk around the factory to complete these work orders doing things such as recording pressures and voltages of certain equipment. Right now they are printing out the work orders and writing down these values then entering them into the computer when they get back from doing the work.

We would like them to have some sort of handheld device we could push their work orders out to that would allow them to enter values/complete work orders and then come back and sync up with our app. Something like an ipod touch or maybe a bit larger seems like a good kind of device. Not really sure what kind of device would work for this and what OS it should run. I'm guessing it will be easiest if I can get something that can run SQL server on it. Also, how would I implement something like this?

Connection String For Sql Server ?

Apr 19, 2012

I have installed sql server 2005 in my machine which is installed 2008. I want my machine to distribute the database to the clients and make it as server.I don't have that much knowledge of how to overcome this issue as i am awfully naive about it.Let me start it here:I have got an application in first i was using ms access database 2007. then decided to switch on to the sql server since i want to distribute the database to the clients who are going to use my application.When i installed the sql server, i imported my access db files onto sql server database. i enabled tcp/ip as enable in the sql server network Configuration. i want use sql server windows authentication as my default user account of my system for the sake to simplify the issue.

Hence, i connected the sql server into the through the "add new data source".am done with that...the problem is how do i assign the connection string to the Or how do i include a connection string in which tells every other computer that the database data source is in my computer so that every computer can automatically check it in the network.Where exactly shall i put the connection far as my knowledge is concerned for access database, you can easily identify your connection string in project /properties/ goes here and you put your database in any where.And what is the best connection string do i need for sql server 2005..computers are running windows xp.

I have Visual Basic 2010 Express and SQL Server 2008 R2 (not Express) installed on my Windows 7 machine. In Visual Studio, I am attempting to create a Data Connection to a database in SQL server. Server Mgmt Studio is not running. When I attempt to add a connection in Database Explorer, to the AdventureWorks _Data database, I get the message "This file is in use. Enter an new name or close the file that's open in another program." There are no programs running except VB, except maybe for the SQL Server engine running the background.Please note that I can open and access tables within a database in code
within Visual Studio, I just can't add a connection in Database Explorer.Am I doing something wrong? I've been very frustrated on this issue for a long time

Find The Real Name Of The Server That Is Specified In The Connection String?

Oct 14, 2011

I have two databases, one on my local work computer and other on a server. Both have been created with Microsoft SQL Server 2008. I can access both of them with connection strings that contains names of the servers and some other information. However the names contain only the ip-number of the server. And I need the full name of the server and the instance created, separated with "" character. I can see them in my SQL management studio but I need to get them from VB-code.I created SqlConnection-class but it finds only the ip-addressed name. SqlSourceDataEnumerator won't do good because it finds all unnecessary server names that I don't need. How can I find the real name of the server that is specified in the connection string?
