MS SQL restrict access to database

hi,
A security inspection on a SQL 2005 server recommended ..
"restricting access to the database  to allowed static IP addresses"...
  it also makes reference to detecting the SQL server via port 4002 ...and thus gaining an in-sight to what version is running etc etc.
Does anyone have any advice on how to complete t his recommendation ?

regards

When you set up the server you can specify what port to listen on. This may require setting up port forwarding on your router to the new port. (http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/3689846/Using-Non-Standard-Port-for-SQL-Server.htm)

To resolve the static IP addresses, it isn't necessary, but if you know only a certain set of computers can connect to the server you can create a white list of IPs to connect to the server.
