Not able to connect to MS-SQL Database by using SQL Server Management Studio installed on my local laptop

0

Hi,

We have just created a brand new account in Amazon EC2.

We have also created a default MS-SQL Server database along with a new EC2 machine.

However, when we try to connect to this database via SQL Server Management Studio installed on my local laptop, we are running into errors.

These errors are not unique. These are typical errors which come while trying to configure connectivity between Management studio and remote database. We have followed all articles and other information available both at Microsoft Technet as well as AWS, however the error have remained unchanged.

Details of the error are given below. I would greatly appreciate it if someone have a look and answer them ASAP.

Many many Thanks, Manoj Kumar

Hi There

  • Is the RDS instance that is running the MSSQL server publicly accessible? (Is it in a public subnet with a route to an Internet Gateway?)
  • Do you have a security group attached allowing MSSQL traffic from your laptop public IP?
