Access server using RDP on a new port number


I have a dedicated web server that I normally access via RDP on my laptop. I have been asked to change the port on the server firewall to use 3399 instead of 3389 for RDP.

How can I tell my RDP client on my laptop to connect via port 3399? It only allows me to enter the ip address and user credentials.

mstsc /v:<server[:port]>

So for example:

mstsc /v:someserver:3399

To see more options:

mstsc /?
