Perhaps things are mis-worded, but I think the answer is fine.
Connecting via IP and port would be connecting to my local server as 127.0.0.1, 1433
That would not use the Browser service. If I connected via SJONES, then the Browser would return the IP and port to my client, which would then connect.
I just read it again, I agree. Its one of those Microsoft certification questions, its sounds like but not quite what the question was asking heh. I guess if the option was "provide ip/port information", then it would be a correct option.
