    Flex on Mac connect to SQL Server 2005 running in VMWare Fusion

    migofast

      I have Flex install on my Mac and I'd like to be able to use 'create application from database' pointed at a SQL Server Express install on VMWare Fusion Win install.

       

      I can ping the server name in the Network utility (not the instance name) but the Flex simple sql server connection when I click Test Connection returns

       

      ava.sql.SQLException: Unknown server host name 'myhost,myport\SQLEXPRESS'.
          at net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.ConnectionJDBC2.<init>(ConnectionJDBC2.java:364)

       

      Ive tried both the name the myhost.mydomain.com and the IP of the machine and im just not making progress. I've also tried connecting to machines that don't have instance names and nada....any ideas?
