You need to install (and configure) the SQL Server Client tools. The
important part here is the 'Client Network Utility' where you create
aliases for host names, protocols and other options.
The default setting for both the SQL server and the client is (in most
cases) to use named pipes for the connection, but if the server and the
client uses different protocols you will not be able to connect without
creating an alias.
