3 Solutions collect form web for “How can I find sql server port number from windows registry?”
SQL Server 2000
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\(InstanceName)\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP
SQL Server 2005
There is no distinction between default and named instances. An instance is assigned a number based on the order it was installed. We first need to locate the registry key for the instance, which looks like
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.#
‘#’ is the number assigned to the instance. The instance name is stored as the default value for this registry key. For a default instance, it is MSSQLSERVER.
Once the registry key for the instance is found, we know the TCP/IP registry key is
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.#\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP\IPAll
SQL Server 2008
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP\IPAll
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.(InstanceName)\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP\IPAll

You can also find the port in the SQL Server Configuration Manager:
- Select Protocols for SQL2008 under SQL server Network Configuration
- Right click “TCP/IP” -> select Properties
- Select the IP Addresses-tab
- In the section IP ALL, you should see the ports
i’m not sure correct or not, u can use the Server Network Utility from the server and click Properties in TCP/IP for Enabled protocols list.
or can also check the port number an instance of SQL Server in the error log i.e. 10.0.0.1: 3306, the last 4 digit no after colon is the SQL server listening for the ip add
