Can not access the database from different computer , sql server 2008.

I created a windows form application which is connected with a local sql server database. The sql server is windows authenticated.

Now I want to run same application on another computer which is connected to this computer via LAN. I just wanted to know the step by step process that allows to access my windows authenticated database on another computer.

When i want to login application from diffrent machine i get following messages

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)

I tried to solve using the help of internet but could not do.

Can anyone fix the issues?
