what do you use RDS for? with CF the developers edition allows you to test everything locally. best to turn it off. helps to secure the server. For database browsing you can use an eclipse plugin (SQLExplorer) you can also use Navicat, Enterprise Manager etc. the only problem i ever had was accessing the administrator remotely with RDS turned off as you can not use some of the Java Applets needed.

if you still want to change the port number here is a document that explains all:

I know that RDS is insecure so I have never used it, however I would like to look into some of the features when integrated with report builder.  I want to change the port number so that I can make it one that is only available on my VLAN.  The article that you provided says nothing about changing the port number that RDS runs on, it only states how to configure Coldfusion Report builder to work with RDS.

# Open the Preferences dialog box by selecting Edit > Preferences from the menu bar.
# Click Server Connection.
# Click the plus sign (+) next to the pop-up menu in the upper-left corner of the dialog box.
# In the Configure RDS Server dialog box, specify the following information, and then click OK:

Description: A name for the server connection. This name appears in the pop-up menu on the left side of the Query Builder.

Host name: The host on which ColdFusion runs. Type localhost or an IP address.

Port: Web server port number. Accept the default port (80) or enter the port number of the ColdFusion server's built-in web server (8500 is the default port number).

I don't think that you quite understand what I was looking for.  You provide information on how to change the port number of a client program using RDS to connect, but not the actual port RDS is RUNNING ON.  I am guessing that since RDS uses http it needs to run on the same HTTP server that Coldfusion runs on; either IIS (port 80) or the Coldfusion Web server (Port 8500) if installed in developer mode.
