If the machine is in a workgroup, SQL server machine is in the domain, make
sure you can ping the SQL server machine from the machine you log on
successfully via IP address or machine name.

Create a same Local user account both on the machine and the SQL server
machine. The Local user account and password on both machines need to be
same . On the SQL server machine, add the Local user account as the SQL
server logins and grant the user right to access the database. By doing so,
you can access the SQL server via Query Analyzer with Windows

Or you can access the SQL server using a SQL logins via Query Analyzer with
SQL authentication.

I hope the information is helpful.
