Online Remote Desktop Problem

I have an interesting problem. I need to connect to my computer at home via online remote desktop. but i can't use port 3389 directly. instead i need to use port 40 but i cant find a internal port fowarder to do that. Here is an example in text drawings


using online
acess point                                           remote computer
port 3389                                              Port 3389

Here is what i need to do
using online
Acess point                                        remote computer
port 40                                               port 40

i have the remote computer part down but i can't get the online remote desktop to acess the remote computer on port 40 it just tries on port 3389 which isn't what i want.

Even though i know it is confusing,
any help would be appreciated!!!!

You can change the default port on which remote desktop listens by editing the registry, try this MS KB which would give you the details.;EN-US;q306759

See what i'm trying to do is acess my windows XP computer from a windows 2000 computer using the online client but the online client won't let me change the port like the windows XP one does. I would use the normal port but someone else already has it so i can't use that. sorry for my mixed up question above. i was half awake when i wrote it.
download the rdp client and install it on your windows 2000 computer

it'll work just like the windows xp version...
