Hi ,

I have a windows 2008 R2 setup the SSTP VPN server.
and I have forward port 443 from hardware firewall to SSTPserver port 443.

But the port 443 on Hardware Firewall needs to be used by some other program.

Can I forward other ports like 2443 to SSTP Server port 443.
and confirugre in the VPN client to access the 2443 when try to establish the connection?

I have tried to server address to be sstp.domain.com:2443 but it failed,

I think you should not, if you really need. just use L2TP/IPsec.

why?

SSTP was invented to solve "a port blocked" problem. assume you have a user in the aireport or public area , and need to connect VPN, then he/she can't connect using port 2443. thats why  SSTP exist ! becuse of port 443 is opened on most public firewalls then users can use SSTP to connect to VPN.

SSTP over any other port ( not 443) will cost you a public certificate price for nothing!

you can encrypt traffic using I2TP/IPsec.
