Hi Thomas, 

How about trying the NS_Client drop in replacement NC_Net that I have
been working on.  The new version that will be dated 12/20 v0.17
should allow for port change.  The only known problems so far is File
age is not implemented. If your interested go to its home page: 

I have tested changing ports and it worked.  to change port of NC_Net
goto the properties of NC_Net in the Windows Services.  make sure the
service is stoped.  TO the start parameters add: port 12480   and then
press the start button to start the service.
the Check_nt password can in a similar way.  Future versions will
include ability to save the configuration for non default options like

Hope this Helps,
