Cannot connect to a share database in BCM 2010

I am setting up a new share database to use with BCM 2010.
I setup the new server 2008 R2
Installs SQL server 2008 express with management tools and called it MSSMLBIZ
Install outlook 2010 and BCM and SQL 2008 express on a new windows 7 PC

When I tried to connect my windows 7 pc to a new share database. I put in my servername and it found the databases I create and shared. But when I try to choose one they are all grayed and I cannot hit the connection button.
I tried changing the permission in the data
base (SQL).
Using the administrator to log in
resetting the ip port to 5356
What am I doing wrong ?

we are in a small domain ( SBS 2003 )
All the firewall are turned off on the server and machine
Thank you

Any problems using Access 2007 database with Access 2010?
According to what I've read, Access 2010 uses the same database format as Access 2007. So this should mean I can open and run a 2007 database (with a lot of VBA code) in Access 2010 with no trouble, yes? So why do I have the feeling that something is not going to work? Is it because I have...
