Xchat default port

Alright, there is probably a real simple answer to this....but how do I change the default port xchat uses to connect to a server? I want to change to 6668, but cannot figure it out for the life of me in xchat 2.4.0. Thanks in advance!

Simple. In your server setup, specify the port of your selected server as 6668.

but I see no way to do that in the server setup....there seems to be no option to specify port or anything. and typing in the ip of the server followed by the port doesn't work either (i.e. xx.xx.xx.xx:6668)
