Have you ever wanted to change the port on which the Remote Desktop Service listens? Here’s how you do it:
- Open the registry editor (regedit.exe)
- Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber
- From the Edit menu, click Modify, and then choose Decimal so you can read the number (it should say 3389)
- Type in the new port number (be sure you don’t choose a port already in use!)
Hope this helps!
