Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm having a rather tough time finding information on this since almost everything I read requires Management Studio installed in the server which I prefer not to do.

Also, to connect to it using SQL Server Management Studio installed on the client, are these settings ok? ServerName: 10.232.234,1433\SQLEXPRESS Login: sa Password: password

Yes, I want to specify the port number in the client side since I have to go through a few firewalls which I have poke holes through to get to the SQL Default port 1433.

You can use the SQLCMD utility to make the change on the command line from the server running the instance. Information about SQLCMD can be found here.

The TSQL command you need to run is:

EXEC sys.sp_configure N'remote access', N'1'
GO
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE
GO
