Hello,
new to the forum and need some assistance in configuring the network for my office.

We have a simple setup since it is a small company and it basically consists of two laptops and a router.

On one of the laptops we are running a SQL server (for our order system) this computer is called OFFICE. This is our main computer. And on the computer we have shared the the folder for all resources related to the order system, but when installing the client for our order system on the other computer (called LAPTOP) we are not able to gain access to the shared resource with the client. The resource itself is visible and accessible in explorer, but when trying to access them via our system access is not allowed?

Firewalls are disabled
Ports (for SQL) are opened on both computers
All permissions and shares are setup according to the book..

Does anyone have any ideas what can be wrong?

It's been a while since I've actually worked with an SQL database and it's possible that if you are using some proprietary system to connect to the system hosting the database you might need to contact the vendor of the
when installing the client for our order system on the other computer
Software package in order to configure the client and host appropriately.

Typically you will need a ODBC DSN (Data Source Name) on the client pointing to the SQL host.
Usually it is a System DSN, but might require either a User DSN or a File DSN.
