    Hello, Nitin, I'm trying create a SQL LOB to connect to an Azure SQL database. However, the connection parameters are not getting accepted, and the error, "A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 – Could not open a connection to SQL Server)", is encountered.

    Both the SQL Azure and the database firewall rules have been set to allow the local system IP. I've also tried with the Encrypt property set to true… no go.

    Could you please suggest what to provide in the connection parameters.

    Thanks and warm regards,

    I have downloaded your samples, but when I run them using VS 2012 on Windows Server 2012 R2 I receive an error that says the project file (csproj) is incompatible with the current edition of VS. Any ideas how I can get  your samples to work?  Thanks!

    When running the MessageSender.exe with the AcceptedOrder.xml file, I receive the error message: "Webexception received while sending the data. An exception occured: StartIndex cannot be less than zero. Parameter name: startIndex."  Any idea where that error is coming from? Thanks!
