Windows Remote Desktop Connection: which additional ports

Hi all,

I understand that the typical port RDC uses is 3389. Are there any other ports that I can safely use to access other computers on my network? Ports that won't conflict with other applications?

Thanks in advance.

Are you wanting to poke holes in your firewall so others can access? if so, that's unwise. You should be setting up a Remote Desktop Gateway server or making users connect via VPN first. Please elaborate on your desired goal so we can provide a professional level, secure solution.

Hi,

I have a small home network (with corresponding knowledge). When I'm away from home, I'd like to access multiple computers, w/o having to install something like Teamviewer on all of them.

Is something like Teamviewer much safer than poking holes in my firewall?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
