Check whether you allow remote connection or not.
Allow Remote connection
and then use

<add key=""con"" value=""Data" source=";Initial" catalog="omx;Persist" security="" info="True;"/"></add>
one of the following solution will help you ,

1)Add the sql server port to the connection string:
Server=YourSQLSRVR,10000;Database=YourDatabase;User ID=User;Password=?????????

1. Your SQl Browser is off
2. Protocols under SQLServer Configuration Manager > SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration > Protocols for SQL Express like TCP/IP, Named Pipes are disabled.


Just Start SQL Browser.
Enable the Protocols.
Restart SQL Express service.

3)your pc name\SQLEXPRESS

u copy this name and paste it in the web config file of your framework as
<add name="this name is as your wish" connectionString="server=your pc name\\SQLEXPRESS; catalog= your database name;SSPI=true; providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" "/>
this section comes under <appSettings/>

then u call this string connection in ur aspx.cs code file as
// Create the Connection object.
string connectionString =
WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["this name is as your wish"].ConnectionString;
SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(connectionString);

then u open the connection and use for your purpose and make sure that u close the connection after use

I hope this might resolve the problem
