Using Different port for Daytime Service

Hi all, is it possible to use a different port number for daytime service. By default the port number of daytime service is 13, so what if I want to get the time from a different port number e.g say 9000 (or any other port).
I guess this would remain the same on the server side !
servaddr.sin_port = htons (13);

So, to specify the port does the user defined port number should be the INADDR_ANY ?
servaddr.sin_add.s_addr = htonl(INADDR_ANY);

has anyone worked on this before.

If you don't change the server port, the server port won't change. Change the server port and the client port.

Thanks Corona, for helping me out with the solution.... this was what I did and it worked.
servaddr.sin_port = htons (PORT_NO);

where PORT_NO is supplied by user as an argument.
