Is there a way to force the whole sql communication over one specific port?

You can specify the PORT number when you start the server. For example:

dbsrv12 -x tcpip(ServerPort=2629) -n server3 c:\mydata.db

After doing this, you then need to specify the port when you issue client connections, for example:

dbisql -c "UID=DBA;PWD=sql;ServerName=server3;Host=serverhost3:2629"

You can read more about this option on DCX:

With MyIP= inside the tcpip() you can also control which of the multiple IP adresses of the server is used by the database server.
