  • Hello Amit,

    Q: Can SQL Server listen on a TCP/IP port for Data?

    A: Endpoints can be created, but not for specific data types like you want. SQL Server only listens for the following types of data on TCP/IP endpoints: TDS (TSQL), Service Broker, and Database Mirroring.

    What you may want to do is look into creating an application that makes use of Service Broker as it seems you're trying to do some type of loading or picking.
