enter image description hereI am trying to add a new SharePoint 2013 web front end and I am getting this error message when I try to add the config database by using SharePoint configuration Wizard.

Error message :

Failed to connect to the existing server farm located at the specified database server and database name. The database name is not a valid configuration database.

I attached some pictures from the ULS log , event log and error message.

I will appreciate any help,
