SQL Express 2005 Remote Connections and Backups

SQL Server Express 2005 doesn't allow remote connections by default.  Some simple instructions for allowing remote connections can be found at ... http://www.datamasker.com/SSE2005_NetworkCfg.htm.

Also grab the free ExpressMaint console utility available at http://www.sqldbatips.com/showarticle.asp?ID=29.  It provides some of the functionality of the sqlmaint utility - backups made easy!

Thanks for the post. I've been trying to figure this one out for the past couple of weeks.
Now I can continue to use my laptop to remote into my computers and watch the NHL playoffs from my couch!
