Cannot connect to NAV 2016 client

Hello All,
I installed a local copy of NAV 2016 in my computer for testing and development.

I can connect to the developer / object explorer, but I cannot connect to the NAV 2016 client.

I added the firewall port of 7046.

My connection string is like this :

Database Server: IOT\IOT2
Database Name: IoTNAV90Test
SQL Edition: Enterprise 64 bit
Server Instance: (this is blank)

When I try to connect using the client.

I do the following string: IOT2:7046/IoTNAV90Test

and I keep getting the attached error message
I have a service running named like this : MicrosoftDynamicsNavServer$DynamicsNAV80

What am I doing wrong ? I spend all day reading and I still cannot connect.

    Ultimately, I just deleted this instance of the DB and did a clean install of client and server.

    - your connection should be localhost:7046 ...
    - you wrote about service "MicrosoftDynamicsNavServer$DynamicsNAV80", but your connection string uses another one (IoTNAV90Test). Why? These should be the same.

    Hi Martin,

    Can you please check if the service account running the service has enough permission or not? If not please provide enough permission and restart the service.

    @lubost The IoTNAV90Test is what I called the database. The service is called DynamicsNAV80. Thank you !

    @kalyankandimalla I will check permissions and elevate them to system admin
