Previously we had sql running on a non-standard port as preventative measure to prevent hack bots from hitting the server. I've since closed off access via our public IP and am now accessing the server over a hamachi VPN.

That's working fine. However, I can only connect over that non-standard port.

I opened the sql config manager, went into the tcp/ip settings and I did not see the IP address from the VPN listed there. So i opened up regedit, copied one of the existing key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\Tcp\IP8

And changed the name to IP9 and updated the Ip address. I merged that into my registry and the IP does show up in the config manager now. However, no matter what i change the port number to, it's still running on that non-standard port. I cant connect on 1433.

I did restart the sql service. I have not however restarted the server as a whole. Is there something else I need to do to get this to work? Seems kind of silly to have to restart the whole server for something as simple as this.
