    [I cannot find my SQL Server Configuration Manager]
    Hi, I have installed both SQL Server Express 2017 and SQL Server Developer 2017 (Separately; not one as a Default or Otherwise Instance) , and they have both run without any major problem. Issue now is that I want to allow a remote connection ( I always ran both as local machines) which requires me to ( among other things) enable TCP/IP . But in order to do that I must use the Configuration Manager, which I cannot find my SQL Server Configuration Manager. Is it possible to download it as a stand-alone into SQL Server ( Through Management Studio, say), or do I have to uninstall the whole SQL Server? I don't know anything about Visual Studio which may be another option. I thought Config Manager would install itself automatically but it seems that is not the case.
    Any ideas, suggestions, please?
    EDIT: My apologies, tunnel vision .
    New Question: I am wondering if it would better to install it in the MSSQL Folder in Program Files?

    Do you know how to allow remote connections through your router? How are you going to keep this secure?

    Sorry, that wasn't very helpful. What I should have said is that the easiest way to get a SQL Server installation running is to use a cloud service such as Microsoft Azure.
