I have a problem that I can not solve. I install SQl server 2014 and create Test1 database on My PC. Now I want to add Geodatabase connection in Arccatalog on Another PC. But it error below. Firewall and Antvirus is disable on my PC. Both of PC is also the same network. I try: DESKTOP-1BB1A4S\SQL
DESKTOP-1BB1A4S\SQL, 1433\SQL, 1433

What do I do wrong?

Note: I can add connection on my PC.

    The error message warns about client connectivity. Did you install the matching client on the non-database machine? Please edit your question to specify the release of ArcGIS being used.

You need to install the SQL Server Native Client so that your client machine (your PC) can talk to SQL Server.

To connect to a database or geodatabase in SQL Server from ArcGIS for Desktop, install the SQL Server native client on the ArcGIS for Desktop computer and create a connection file in the Catalog tree

See Connect to SQL Server from ArcGIS

The SQL Server Native Client is available from your My Esri portal.

Also see Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Feature Pack - expand Install Instructions and you will find a download for the Native Client about half way down the page. Note the 2012 Native Client is used for SQL 2014.
