Last Modified: 2012-05-09


I installed SQL server 2005, what TCP port number I should give to?  After I installed SQL 2005, the default TcpPort number is 1433. I also used 1433 in SQL server 2000 another production server. can I use the same TCP port number in both of SQL server 2000 and SQL server 2005?

Thank you,
