Configuring SQL Server 2000 remotely

I have installed SQL Server 2000 on 2 systems, 1 having Windows XP and the other having Windows Vista.

Now I want to remotely access the SQL Server 2000 from Query Analyzer through both the systems.

Can anybody help me with what kind of settings are required for it?

Do you mean simply what is required to connect to a database on a different machine using Query Analyser? What aspects exactly do you want to configure remotely?

Let me see if i understood your question:

  • If you have two sql 2000 servers ( 1 XP and 1 Vista ) and 1 client using Query Analyser, and want to connect to both systems

If this is the case, do you have any problems with the default way of connecting ? like specify server name ( or ip adress depends on TCP/IP or named pipes connection protocol ), and either windows or sql server authentication.

If they are on separate networks, you will need to enable TCP/IP connection protocol ( i think its enabled by default ), and use IP address instead of server names to connect.

If you have firewalls, sql server use ports 1433 ( tcp ) and 1434 ( udp ). To help on firewall configuration check: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287932

  • If you want to link both together, and from a single client run queries on both of them

If this the case, choose one server and create a linked server to the other, and with the proper credentials you could run things like:

select * from [server1].dbo.table1 as S1 
inner join [server2].dbo.table1.column1 as S2 on S1.column1 = S2.column1

Let us know if this helped.
