I have obviously underscored out some of the credentials. The SQL Server is 2008.
I am not able to connect, and the message I'm getting is the following:
com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: The TCP/IP connection to the host 74.__.171.___, port 1433 has failed. Error: "Permission denied. Verify the connection properties, check that an instance of SQL Server is running on the host and accepting TCP/IP connections at the port, and that no firewall is blocking TCP connections to the port.". (I have underscored out some of the IP address of course).
Keep in mind, that I am using the android emulator, API level 8 (Android 2.2). Also, this database WORKS. I have tested the TCP/IP connection in management studio and it works within seconds. I have connected with the TCP/IP protocol with 3 different applications. It all works. PLEASE HELP!
