Failure to connect the SERVER 2008



I understand you problem since I had this problem two three days ago. In my situation I tried to connect to the database in remote machine in my office. That server is MS SQL 2005 and the server I tried to connect is MS SQL 2008. 
The problem is we cannot connect to a MS SQL 2008 server using MS SQL 2005 server. Because it is not supported to that version. This is called compatibility issues in IT industry. 
I did not try to connect to MS SQL 2005 server from MS SQL server 2008. Sometimes it may be works. But not sure.
