SQL Server Client Network Utitily

If you are working with a number of SQL Server instances or have really complex server/instance names, its good to use aliases with easy naming conventions. The same can be used to connect to SQL Server instancess. For you to create these aliases you can use the SQL Server Client Network utitily programs (cliconfg). Aliases would secure the real instance names of the SQL Server in any case if its exploited by an external hacker.
