SQL connection error - unknown host name

Just downloaded the ap - have been looking for a direct SQL query tool for iPhone for a looooooooong time :-)

I enter the server name in the following format:\sqlinstancename
where the 000s are the ip address of the server and the name is the instance name of SQL 2008R2. This is exactly how the server name appears on MS SQL Studio 2008 which I use all day long to manage the database.

The ap gives the error "unknown server host name".

Yes, the server is open to connections - as I said above, I use SQLStudio all day long from multiple locations.

Anything silly I'm doing wrong or a different fromat for the name???
