http://serverfault.com – I am trying to connect from desktop to SQL Server 2012 (on a different server) and getting the following error: Connection Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed during the post-login phase. The connection could have timed out while waiting for server to complete the login process and respond; Or it could have timed out while attempting to create multiple active connections. The duration spent while attempting to connect to this server was - [Pre-Login] initialization=190; handshake=4; [Login] initialization=0; authentication=102; [Post-Login] complete=14002; (Microsoft SQL Server) (HowTos)
