Why does the tcp-ip net-lib not appear as an option in SQL Setup?

A. Two possible reasons :-

  1. With 6.5 and below you have integrated security defined. Integrated security requires NT authentication of net-lib connections and tcp-ip sockets does not offer this.
  2. The server does not have tcp-ip loaded as a network protocol. Check this via control panel/networks/protocols.
