This works:
     ServerName IT111111
   InstanceName INSTANCENAME
    IsClustered No
        Version 9.00.5000.00
            tcp 1223
             np \\IT111111\pipe\MSSQL$INSTANCENAME\sql\query

After this I can then connect using tsql with command:
tsql -H -p 1223 -U user -P pass

But still I cannot connect using isql. Config summary (I specified port number for testing purposes, I hope I can remove it in the final configuration):
Driver          = TDS 
Trace           = No
Server          =
Port            = 1223
TDS_Version             = 9.0

Description             = FreeTDS Driver for Linux & MSSQL on Win32
Driver          = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/libtdsodbc.so
Setup           = /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/odbc/libtdsS.so
UsageCount              = 4

        Trace           = No
        Host            =
        Port            = 1223
        TDS_Version     = 9.0

# isql -v SQLMAND user pass
[S1000][unixODBC][FreeTDS][SQL Server]Unable to connect to data source
[ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect
