Connecting Certify to a nonstandard port number for SQL server

By default, SQL Server listens on the well known port 1433.  However, SQL Server can be configured to listen on a different port. Certify can connect to SQL Server on the port where SQL Server is listening if it is not 1433.


For example,  if the SQL Server is configured to listen on port 1444 instead of 1433.  When I tried to connect with Certify it failed.  I then modified my configuration file.  I changed my database server entry from


    <add key="DATABASESERVER" value="localhost" />


    <add key="DATABASESERVER" value="localhost,1444" />
