Change RDC Port
Posted on 2006-05-09
My client has 2 2003 server boxes behind a firewall and I need to get to both of them over the internet. I'm trying to change the port RDC uses on one of the servers from the default of 3389. I go into regedit and change the port to, say, 3391, open up the new port in the router and try to connect using <ip address>:new port # and it won't connect. If I take out
the :port# and reset the router to use 3389, it works? I go back to regedit
and the port shows it should be listening on 3391?
Any ideas? What am I missing? Do I have to re-boot the server?
