Using SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition for Team Foundation Server

For those who want to use SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition, Anthony Borton has a post that covers using the Surface Area Configuration Tool to enable remote TCP connections.

With the Developer edition of SQL Server 2005 RTM being the first available on the MSDN Subscriber site, a number of people have installed Team Foundation Server with SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition. This configuration requires an additional step during the setup to enable remote TCP/IP connections. This is a known requirement but it seems people are still missing this.
