If you mean remote Access RDP then the port is 3389 unless you have change it....but to be certain i always leave a back door to a VNC server available only from a specific IP/IPs...if something goes bad then you have option No #2

In Windows Control Panel, go to Windows (Defender) Firewall.
Select (left): Advanced Settings.
Select: Incoming Rules (top left)

Find in the list: Remote Desktop TCP, and activate this rule.

Also, remember to grant rights to remote users not being administrators.
