Help using Microsoft SQL Server, understanding your Login Details and making changes to your database

What port number does your SQL Server run on, and how do I connect to the server?

While SQL Server's default port is 1433, our servers run on alternative ports. The port number will vary depending on a number of factors, and you are advised to refer to your original login details. When you quote the server in your web site code, you would typically use "my-server-name,port" (where port is the number your SQL Server is configured with).

When using Enterprise Manager or Management Studio, the port can be specified either manually in the appropriate option on-screen or by quoting the "my-server-name,port" format again.
