I have created a Azure SQL database but now I want to connect it using SQL server management studio. But, whenever I tried to connect it, it is throwing an 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: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 53)

Can anyone help me how to solve this issue?

Basically, the error shows up as because whatever request you are trying to provide is not able to leave the system.  Also, this will only work for SQL Server Management Studio R2 2008 and beside this it will not work for any other version.

I hope this will help.
