This isn't a programming question so I hope it's okay to post it here.
I'm having trouble trying to connect to SQL Server on a colleague's PC. I keep getting a Timeout Expired error.
I decided to disable the firewall on her machine just to see if that was what was causing my problem. As soon as I disabled it I was able to connect.
Obviously I don't want to keep her firewall disabled so I re-enabled it. But I don't know what exceptions to add to it. I've already added sqlservr.exe but I still can't connect.
I'm not sure if this is related to my problem but I just noticed that the SQL Server Browser service isn't running. When I try to start it I get the following message:
Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly
Can you suggest what I should try next?
