  • Click Start >> Run
    For SQL Server 2005 Type "SQLServerManager.msc" and click OK
    For SQL Server 2008 Type "SQLServerManager10.msc" and click OK

    This will Open the SQL Server Configuration Manager for you.
    Now in the Left Pane, expand "SQL Server Network Configuration" and click on "Protocols for <InstanceName>"
    Now In the right pane, right-click on the "TCP/IP" protocol and go to properties - In the bottom there is TCP port - 1433(This is default) if your sql instance is other than default it will be dynamic port.

    For host name RUN>>CMD>hostname>> this will provide host name of the server.
