SQL-ServerName is per default the Name of the Server where SQLServer is installed. If you don't have a active directory use the TCP/IP-Address instead of a servername. Do not forget the name of the instance if one is installed... –  Ice Nov 7 '10 at 22:16

  (2) Is the SQL Server Browser service started?
  (3) Is the SQL Server configured to allow remote connections?
