SAP Power Designer 16.5 SP 5 Portal installation error

I have tried to use Microsoft SQL server for SAP Power Designer 16.5 SP 5 Portal installation

I have created the database on the SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere 12.

But I haven't seen any port number for this unlike SAP IQ.

How can can I know this is using 2638 port or not.

In the database parameter screen for the repository . I gave the credentials but it is giving error like below.

Please help me where it went wrong. Why it is not working . I have tried with SQL server also. There also not working fine.

Thanks & Regards,

    The "Personal Server" is started by the command dbengNN (dbeng12 in your case). It only accepts connection via shared memory.

    Besides, I think I remember there might a protection problem (from Windows 7 and up?), preventing the Portal run as a service, to access the shared memory connection opened by your Personal Server.

    To use the Portal, the database must be accessible by TCP.

    So you need the "Network Server", dbsrvNN to open a TCP port (2638 by default).

    Unless there is also a way to access a Personal Server through a JDBC connection string, but I don't know it.

    It looks like there used to be a JDBC-ODBC bridge included with SQL Anywhere, which would have allowed a connection through a (system) ODBC datasource. But it looks like it is no longer provided.
