Hi all,
i am trying to connect to sql server from remote computer but it gives me sql server error 26. server was not found or not accessible.

i have checked below things

1) my sql is using mixed mode authentication
2) my sql browser services is running
3) remote connection allowed in database
4) tcp ip is enabled in sql configuration manager
5) add tcp 1433 port to firewall exception
6) set inbound rule for tcp port
7) my server name and sql instance name is correct
8) user name and password are also correct.

do i need to add UDP port 1434 to firewall exception to connect? if yes , why cause using above points i can easily connect to other server. is there anything new in sql 2012 for this settings?

Check tcp port instead...
