I'm trying to connect from an external source to a database internally.  I need to open up a port for the ODBC connection on our firewall, but I don't know what port ODBC runs on.  Anyone know?

it depends on which server you're talking to.

For Sql default is 1433, but it can be on any port you need it to be.

So the port isn't dependent on if you're using ODBC.  The port is decided based on which type of database you are trying to connect to?  For example, if I was connecting to a MySQL DB via ODBC then I would open up port 3306?

Not sure about the MYsql Port, but whatever port the server is listening on for the DB is what you need to open up.
