Suppose if we use Windows authentication mode then you can login to SQL Server only in the VM where SQL Server is installed. But Mixed mode uses Windows authentication and SA account where “sa” account will allow users to login outside the VM with in the network. Also I will specify password for this “sa” account.

Note: Don’t forget to add the current user in the bottom box as shown below to enable windows authentication.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was curious what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
