I am trying to connect to a SQL 2008 server that is running TCP on port 11433.  Visual Studio wants to connect to the server of 1433.  The two are just not seeing eye to eye.  How do I make VS 2010 connect on port 11433?

I'm not sure with your problem, but if you can check the settings and 4th point (Enable Remote Connection) in below link.

see if this helps,

Great artical but still no luck.  I have multiple NICs in the SQL 2008 server and I tried changing the Port for the NIC in Configuration Manager -> SQL Server Network Configuration -> Protocols for MSSQLSERVER - TCP/IP -> Properties --> IP Addresses TCP Port on the IP Address of the NIC that I am trying to access.  I changed it from 11433 to 1433.  Rebooted the server and still no luck.  I checked the registry and saw the changed had been updated.  I made specific rule in the firewall for the port....NO Luck:)  

Any Ideas?

How are you trying to connect from Visual Studio? Are you talking about your code, the Server Explorer, or something else?

yes to server explorer.
- open your VS.NET project
- go to server explorer
- right-click on 'Data Connections'
- select 'Add Connection'
- Advanced...
- Data Source = "SERVER=servername;DATABASE=YourDataBaseName;Network=DBMSSOCN;Address=IP_Address,1433;UID=YourUID;PWD=YourPassword;"

try this if it works!

BTW, are you able to connect sql server through Management Studio?

You should add an alias on the client machine which is (where the VS is) connecting to the SQL Server in SQL Server Configuration Manager -> Aliases.

Thanks,

Rikin,
That was it.  My mistake initially was that I put Data Source x.x.x.x:11433 and I should have put x.x.x.x,11433.  Works like a champ now.

Thanks
