This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.
The SpxPort property specifies the NWLink IPX/SPX port number on an instance of Microsoft SQL Server.
The NWLink IPX/SPX port number is the number of the SPX socket to which the server listens for connections.
To set the SpxPort property, you must be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role.
Setting the SpxPort property changes registry settings, and it should be used with caution.
If an application calls SpxPort on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned.
