The link provided in the answer states, "When SQL Server clients request SQL Server resources, the client network library sends a UDP message to the server using port 1434. SQL Server Browser responds with the TCP/IP port or named pipe of the requested instance. The network library on the client application then completes the connection by sending a request to the server using the port or named pipe of the desired instance."

Does this not contradict the reported explanation?

I was just about to make the same point. It seems that Conecting via TCP/IP should be correct also?

Aaa I am late Sad. But I agree with it, I was talking to Microsoft Engineer on recent course. Because every book tells me to turn of Browser service as it is not required. So I ask him why the heck Microsoft made it if most people recommend it to disable it.

After talking, it turned out the Browser service is required if you use a non-standard port for SQL Server. If you a non-standard port, and you have the browser service turned off, then you did have to enter the port information into the connection properties.

Smile.

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.

OK, I understand what you are saying. If my client connects by specifying the IP and Port then it would not use or need the Browser Service. Thanks for the explanation.

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.
