Sql installation TCP ports

I installed a Named SQl instance which does not support Dynamic Ports.   Trying to determine other TCP Ports available and that can be safely used for the named instance.  Default port is already in use by the default instance.  Inputs appreciated.  OS Windows server 2012 r2

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you can use either telnet or portQry.exe  
query the port and if it listens its in use

I usually put some port greater than 5000

I usually let it select a port dynamically. Then check that it is working and all is well etc. Then fix that port that SQL has chosen.

Here in this article you can find the reserved port number but basically what it says is:
System Ports (0-1023),
User Ports (1024-49151),
Dynamic/Private Ports (49152-65535)
