I have a cable DSL Linksys router, I opened the port 3389 for RDC. Also I opened another port 3387 for RDC too.For some reason, the 3387 some times is disconnected, and you cannot connect remotely.Any solution for this?

are both ports forwarded to the same computer, and if so, what OS is that computer running?  if both are going to the same computer, is terminal services running?

generally speaking, you get one RDC connection per computer, unless you are running a terminal server.

More importantly - it will not work if you are going to the same computer because you can only have ONE port specified for RDC / Terminal Services

If they are going to different computers, I would update network drivers on all PCs/Servers, verify cable connections, and perhaps replace cables to test.  If it is using a wireless connection THAT is causing the issue.

Thanks,

Justin

You are able to change the default port used for RDP/Terminal services using a registry hack.  This is helpful if you are sharing one IP using NAT over multiple computers.

The other one has the port 3387,of course, I changed the registry on local computer, but some times you cannot connect.
