Connct to SQL server from vmware

Hello Guys,

I have a dedicated server that my sql server has been installed on it, aslo I have a Vmware VPS that i want to connect with the vps to sql server. but I got this 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: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

while i can connect to the sql server from another dedicated server, I just have problem in Vmware vps? how can I resolve this issue?

There is a communication error between the VPS and your SQL server. Is your SQL server at the same location/network as your VPS?
