    Cannot connect to MS SQL Express with SQL developer

    LeeDuncan
      I am having issues connecting to a MS SQL database with SQL developer, I have pasted a screen shot of my error message below, I have tried multiple blogs, websites, etc with no success.
      Connection name: minc
      username: domain\username
      password: password

      hostname: my local machine name
      port: 1433

      Error Message= Status : Failure-Test Failed: Cannot connect to Microsoft SQL Server on localhost

      Also, please confirm the proper location of where the jdbc driver for MSSQL should be downloaded from and placed.

      Please help.

      Thanks
