When you want to connect to a 4D Server application that is using a custom TCP port number you need to tell 4D Client which port to use. You can do that in the custom tab of the Login dialog:



To specify the TCP port, simply enter the IP address of the machine, followed by a comma and the IP port number.

Never mind, just checked, and this works

In later versions, i.e. 2004, this syntax also works 10.96.0.63:19814. How does one specify the port number when using a DNS name? db01.domain.com
