Cannot add server to Visual Studio Server Explorer

I am unable to add a remote server to the Visual Studio Server Explorer for my ASP.Net website which has been running for about 9 months.

I have added a connection to the database that is working well.

The error message leads me to think I may not have the path entered correctly. I have tried a number of combinations, including using the IP Address.

Error Message: Could not reconnect to "servername". Make sure that the machine name and path are valid.


If the server is a remote server then may be the firewall is blocking. Check firewall in the machine in which SQL server is running.
