I have been looking and looking and looking and I can't seem to find the answer, and by talking with the people who use these boards i know atleast one of you work on SQL serversTongue out

I have been trying to install Hacme Bank from Foundstone, a division of McAfee and I have SQL Server Express 2005, IIS, and .NET 1.1 and 2, but I cannot figure out the setup options to allow remote connections in order to edit databases. i.e: Hacme Bank setup to install the Bank's databases. An answer would be nice, but if not, atleast comment if you've used Foundstone's Hacme products.

The default in SQL Server express is to use the "Shared Memory" connection method only.  That means only local applications can connect.  You need to allow TCP protocol on the server.  Check out the following MS Support KB article for some help..
