Hello,
I've beend developing a n-tier vb.net/MS SQL server application and it's now getting close to deployment.  I'm new to vb.net and MS SQL server and so I've been teaching myself as I go along - (Talk about diving in the deep-end).  At any rate, the IT department wants me to provide the IP of the MS Sql server and the protocol in order to create an exception in the firewall  to external parties trying to access it.  Basically, the server is sitting behind the firewall.  This is a test-server,  the production server will be sitting outside the firewall in a DMZ. Thanks again

the default port is the tcp 1433.
you just have to open this port  for the ip of the sql server on your firewall.

Run it from SSMS (t-sql)

master..xp_cmdshell 'ipconfig'

1433 is the default - but you do not have to use it.  The port can be changed.

To validate which port you're using, view this link as a guide.
