Typically, what I do is connect using the ip address of the
machine. To do this you have to enable the option in your TCP/IP,
WINS setting of "Enabled DNS for Windows Resolution". Then
open up a dos prompt and type:

net use * \\\c$ /user:domain\username password

where is the IP address of your SQL Server and
domain\administrator is domain and username and password
is your password.

You should have your default library as named pipes and then
just enter as the server name in Emerald or SQLEW.

The above is an alternative to using straight TCP/IP as noted
below, BTW. Either will work if you set them up correctly.
