You have to install TCP/IP support on SQL Server, and then define a
tunnel in Wingate to allow your Emerald clients to get to your
SQL Server. Typically this is port 1433, but you can define whatever
you want.

Use the client configuration utility to define a connection to your
SQL Server using TCP/IP and then you should be able to connect.
Configuring and SQL client for TCP/IP is outlined in the Admin
Companion book (yeah, that big thick one).
