Hi Erik,

After having a look at SQl Compare, it doesn't seem to accept a port
number in the database connection dropdown. What you can do to get it
working is to go into your SQL Client Connection Manager on your computer
and create an alias to the server using TCP/IP, then connect to the distant
end server using the alias.

Please let me know if you need any more information.
