due to security reasons I run several sql servers on differnet ports other than 1433 udp.

I have no problem connecting via my coded systems between boxes but can't get my local sql 2000 enterprise manager or query analyser to connect via alternative ports to my remote sql servers.  there seems to be no easy way to switch between the varios ports I run my sql servers on.  does anyone know how to do it.  Particularly in query analyser.

Set up different aliases to the same server in the network utility.  You can assign different addresses/ports to the same server.
