VPN Client on Alternative Port

Dear experts,

I have a PPTP VPN server which I connect to using the Windows VPN client.      I want to change the port nunmber I use.    I think I know how to do this at the server end but is there any way to get the Windows client to connect to a port other than 1723?

I don't think it's possible.

What do you mean port? VPN Client on WIndows XP does not work on a transport layer - it creates tunnel on MAC/LLC (L2TP) or on IP layer.
So I don't think you are correct about "connection to port 1723" - this doesn't make sense.
