Adding a server in SAM...no port number request

Why, when I want to add a server in SAM, am I not asked for the port number? It seems that is the issue between my being able to create a viable connection and getting this message:
--The server you selected cannot be accessed. Contact your System Administrator for assistance.--I have 'pinged' the server and there is a viable connection.

I'm using version 1.9

Thanks for any ideas...

    I thought I should respond that I don't know the answer to this.  I would do the following: Call the tech support in my school or district first to see if the server is off line. If they can't help me, would then call Scholastic Tech Support at 1-800-283-5974 to see if they have an idea of what to do. Dee Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
