I have created a filemaker pro 12 database using a sql server external data source. When I host the file on filemaker server 12 and open it on filemaker go I am prompted to enter an account name and password to login to the sql server database. Even though I originally setup the filemaker database to login automatically with a specified username and password, i enter in any username and password that should work to log into the sql server and I get this error message:


ODBC Error: [Microsoft][SQL Natvie Client]Named Pipes

Provider: No process is on the other end of the pipe.


[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's

SQLSetConnectAttr failed

[Microsoft[]SQL Native Client]Communication link failure


Does anyone know what is going on? Please help
