The host should support "localhost" or "". This is literally the host used in the socket: https://github.com/cretz/node-tds/blob/master/src/tds-client.coffee#L42. There are some undocumented connections options you can provide such as instanceName which will choose the instance (actually sent as part of a TDS prelogin packet)

I will leave this issue open until I document some of those other connection options.

@cretz Is instanceName one of the Connection option keys available in 0.1.0?

Yes, it should be, but just not documented. I have not yet tested its functionality.
