Unable to connect to SQL server SD45 WIN XP2

Hello!

I have just installed SQL2000 SP4 on a Win XP SP2 and when trying to connnect to the SQL server with SD45 SP17 to create a database i get:
Failed to open connection to service desk repository. Connection refused: connect. There seems to be no difference if I turn off the firewall.

Please any suggestions

Regards
Peter

Hi,

Try to connect to the SQL Server by using IP address instead SQL Server name.
Check the SQL Server logs for failed logins.
Test your username / password combination, just to make sure it works correctly.
