    did you change it using regedit?
    Start>run type regedit click ok

    Navigate the following key in the registry from left pane


    On the Edit menu, click Modify, click Decimal, type the new port number, and then click OK.
    close Registry Editor.

    NOTE: When you try to connect to this computer by using the Remote Desktop connection, you must type the new port.

    You need to make sure your firewall is opened for this port
