Below is the error i get when i try to connect to the SQL server:

Cannot connect to

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server.

The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections.

(provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 1326)

I am currently trying to configure the database to gridview in VS 2010.

Actually i got the same error, it is just a IP related issue.

You can try the below steps:

  • Open "SQL Server Configuration Manager"
  • Now Click on "SQL Server Network Configuration" and Click on "Protocols for Name"
  • Right Click on "TCP/IP" (make sure it is Enabled) Click on Properties
  • Now Select "IP Addresses" Tab -and- Go to the last entry "IP All"
  • Enter "TCP Port" 1433.
  • Now Restart "SQL Server .Name." using "services.msc" (winKey + r)

It worked for me.
