Hi all i have recently regestered at jodohost and I think this service is great. i am having a problem to connect to the sql database using sql enterprize manager. the steps i am using to connect: 1. i am using client network utility to connect using tcp/ip to the ip address of my sql server 188.8.131.52 (mssql1.jodoshared.com) at default port number 1433 2. i entered the enterprize manager and choose the connection done in the first step. added my username and password for sql server but i get an error (preloginhandshake) 3. my username and password are correct because i am able to enter to the online database admin at http://sqladmin.jodohost.com i have even tried to connect using this site http://www.aspenterprisemanager.com they offer a demo on the right but with no luck. (note: admin give this a try) is anybody conneted to mssql1.jodoshared.com able to connect using the sql enterprize manager. i am convinced that remote connection other than http://sqladmin.jodohost.com is not possible.
