SQL Server Connectivity issue on LAN

SQL Server Connectivity issue on LAN

SQL Server Connectivity issue on LAN

Hi Programmers,

i have very small knowledge about SQL Server. i have a application created in VFP9 back-end using SQL Server 2017. Application run successfully on local system.
using following string
nHandle = SQLStringConnect("Driver={SQL Server};Server=DESKTOP-494255d;Database=QAMAR;Uid=;Pwd=;")

now i want to run application on local area network (LAN). how to connect SQL Server Database on an other PC (workstation).

please suggest me with VFP code.

Thanks in advance.
