I am getting this error below while connecting from remote server. My local Db instance works. ConnectionString extracted from VS2017 SQL server explorer.
Server Error in '/' Application.
A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)
add name="AppNameCString" connectionString="Data Source=mssql5.gear.host;Database=mssqlserver;Integrated Security=False;User ID=mssqlserver;Password=*********;Encrypt=False;TrustServerCertificate=True;ApplicationIntent=ReadWrite;MultiSubnetFailover=False" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you
