Modifying default port / Port scan
Posted on 2006-06-20
If I were to change my default port for Remote Desktop from 3389 to 10000, for example, how easily can the RDP service (or any other service for that matter) be discovered? If someone were to scan all 65K ports and came across port 10,000, is there a tool that tells you what service is running there, and not just give you a 'Well this is port 10000, so it MUST be the XYZ service' response. Aside from Windows updates, a firewall, and a strong password, is this just a false sense of security?
