    Lightbulb 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 Windows 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 server’s IP address and port in the following format: (Where “″ is the server’s IP address, and “33994″ is the RDP port number.)

    Changing the RDP listening port on Windows Server. ... RDP transports on TCP 3389 by default for all supported versions of Windows; if you want to change the port, it requires a quick change in the Windows registry. (Note: Editing the registry is risky, so be sure you have a verified backup before saving any changes.)

    Go to the Start menu and click on Run.
    On the Run menu type MSTSC and click Enter.
    In the RDP window, in the Computer box, scroll to the computer name or IP to which you wish to connect.
    Add a ":Port" (without the quotes) where "Port" is the decimal value of the destination port.
