I have a WIN 2008 R2 Server hosting 4 Different SQL Server Instances. I would like to configure one the Instances to listen on a Statis TCP port - different from the other Instances. The reason for this is because I have a UNIX client trying to connect to one of the named Instances and being that it's UNIX, they cannot use the '\' in the SQL Server name.
I figured is I could configure one of the named Instances to listen on a different port, they could just use the connection string Servername:1435 instead of what they are trying to use now which is servername\instancename :1433
can anyone help?
