In NetBeans.
So I have the driver setup in the runtime tab. But unfortunately I cannot connect using it.
In the "New Database connections" dialog box where you fill in the details you want to connect with I have the following:

name: SQlServer 2005
database url :jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433/pubs
username: sa
password: .

The error I get shown when I click on OK is:
"unable to add connection,cannot establish a connection to the jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433/pubs using (the port number 1433/pubs is not valid.)"

Note:I can connect from code using the above specs.
