Changing the Port Number for Remote Desktop Access

June 3rd 2006 Administration Windows

I really need to write down this information here so that I won't be googling for it every time a friend or a coworker asks me about it. The default port number 3389 for RDP (Remote Desktop and Terminal Services) can be changed through the following registry value: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber.
