I have a virtual host, created with VMWare. I don't own the main machine, I just can make remote connection to virtual server.
I've installed SQL EXPRESS and want to remote connect it from my computer using SQL Studio. But the port Studio uses(1433 default) is closed. I've been searching for documents for last 2 days, tried everything I could find, but nothing worked.
I just couldn't make it to open a port. I guess it's because it's a virtual server. Just want to assure you that I've made all the configurations for SQL EXPRESS, it's only about port. When I write telnet localhost 1433 to MS-DOS, it says it was unsuccessful.
Is there a way to open this port ON the virtual machine?
