How to change the listening port for Remote Desktop
Posted by Bill Williams on 07 June 2014 01:23 PM

1) Start Registry Editor (Start -> Run -> Type 'regedit' -> Enter)

2) Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber

3) On the Edit menu, click Modify, and then click Decimal.

4) Type the new port number, and then click OK.

5) If you have any firewall installed, add a rule to allow traffic over new port number that you enter (Must!) - Please ensure that this step is followed correctly else you will lose connectivity with your VPS.

6) Quit Registry Editor.

7) Restart Remote Desktop Services or reboot entire machine.
