Since updating windows internet wont connect

This fools Windows into launching SSMS as the login you specify, rather than your own (this isn't something you can set in the Connection properties dialog of SSMS, it's how you need to launch SSMS from the command line or a shortcut): If you have the server name, port and login details correct, you should now be able to use Windows Authentication from most client tools, SSMS, Excel, whatever. Tip: Sometimes you need to use the FQN for the server when adding the credentials. Tip: use the "cmdkey /add" command to script creating and updating stored credentials. It seems to depend on what your client machine thinks the remote machine is called rather than what it might actually be called.I've put an invented entry ("verysillytest.mwardm") in my host file for the IP address (as those of us accessing from outside of domains are wont to do) and set up the credential in the name "verysillytest.mwardm:1433".

If you’ve got a current generation Intel Skylake processor, they’re going to stop issuing security updates for these older supported versions of Windows in about eighteen months.As partners make customizations to legacy device drivers, services, and firmware settings, customers are likely to see regressions with Windows 7 ongoing servicing.”), which is scheduled to be released later this year.Your ability to use Windows 7 and 8.1 on your existing machine depends on what kind of processor you’ve got.In a few years, I think we’ll look upon Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 in a similar way.Microsoft will continue to refine and upgrade Windows 10 (indeed, they’ve said that it’ll be the “last Windows ever”.I can then connect happily (from a little app called Query Express) using either the hostname or the IP address.

Ah, well "ping -a" didn't give me anything and nslookup didn't (immediately) work because I wasn't using the domain's DNS servers.Although Windows 7 will continue to receive updates until 2020, and Windows 8 until 2023, and in spite of the fact that these versions of Windows run quite happily on Skylake processors, Microsoft is discontinuing support for these versions of Windows on Skylake on July 17, 2017. After that point, only the “most critical” security fixes will be released for those platforms.There’s no guarantee of that either, as these fixes will only be released if they don’t “risk the reliability or compatibility” of Windows 7 and 8.1 on non-Skylake systems. Only a handful of machines will be eligible to receive updates and patches in the months leading up to July 2017, and these are overwhelmingly top-end business machines from a small handful of manufacturers.Rather than allow Windows 7 and 8.1 to continue to be used well past their prime, like Windows XP was, Microsoft is taking some drastic steps to bring about its graceful retirement.Ensuring that Windows 7 is insecure on current-generation hardware, and not supporting it on next-generation hardware will go a long way to meeting that goal.Don't worry, I actually prefer the flexibility of just having to know the IP address (and the login) and being able to make up my own name! I just wonder - is it supposed to work like that or is it a bug or a design fail on the side of SQL Server?
