Configure SQL Server Express to allow remote tcp/ip connections on port 1433?
Posted by on 02 July 2013 07:57 AM
  1. Run SQL Server Configuration Manager.
  2. Go to SQL Server Network Configuration > Protocols for SQLEXPRESS.
  3. Make sure TCP/IP is enabled.

Extra Steps:

  1. Right-click on TCP/IP and select Properties.
  2. Verify that, under IP2, the IP Address is set to the computer's IP address on the local subnet.
  3. Scroll down to IPAll.
  4. Make sure that TCP Dynamic Ports is blank. (Mine was set to some 5-digit port number.)
  5. Make sure that TCP Port is set to 1433.

Note: if you follow these steps, it's not necessary to enable SQL Server Browser, and you only need to allow port 1433, not 1434.
