I've got such an IP address from a hosting company as a means to connect to SQL Server remotely. This has always worked.

I understand the IP part but what's with the last part after the comma?

It's the 16-bit TCP/UDP port number.

Shouldn't port number be specified as :port? What's different with a comma? –  someuser May 3 '12 at 6:31
