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

i can see only this, inbound or outbound
this one? allow? and then i can activate Firewall?

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

how to do that?
This PC, select Properties.
Click (left) Settings for Remote Connection.

Set Allow Remote Connection to on, and assign users.

i can see works without grant users,anyway is good to know thank you,see:

thank you
