  • How to Change RDP Port on Windows Server (Remote Desktop)

    If you use remote desktop (RDP) with your Windows server, you may wish to update the server's RDP port for added security. To update the RDP port from the default port 3389, follow the steps below:
    • Start the Registry Editor by navigating to Start > Run >*regedit
    • Locate the registry key called*HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber
    • Click the subkey PortNumber, find the*Edit*menu, choose*Modify, then select*Decimal.
    • Type your desired port number. It should be xxxx or xxxxx, and should not conflict with another running service (choose a high port number).
    • Click*OK.*Exit*Registry Editor.*Restart*the system.

    The server's port for RDP connections will now be updated.
    NOTE: To connect to the server on the new port, you will need to specify the port in Remote Desktop Connection or your RDP application of choice. This is usually done by entering the serverís IP address and port in the following format:*(Where ď0.0.0.0″ is the serverís IP address, and ď33994″ is the RDP port number.)
