I'm using an ASP (Active Server Page) to call a stored procedure on a remote SQL Server. It's not executing, instead it's stalling. When my Web server and SQL Server are on the same machine I don't have this problem. What step am I missing to get this to work remotely?
By default, SQL Server 2005 doesn't allow remote connections. Run the
SQL Server Surface Are Configuration tool
to check that you have remote connections enabled. If you are using SQL Server 2000, ensure the Transmission Control Protocol is enabled in svrnetcn.exe. If these are enabled, be sure you're not being blocked by a firewall and the port is actually open.
