Remoteapps with non-standard RDS port

Last Modified: 2018-11-06
I have a client with a 2016 RDS server using a non-standard port (not 3389) for security reasons, which works fine.
The client would like to setup a RemoteApp for it as well.  If I set the RDS server to the standard port of 33889, the remoteapp works fine, but when I change the port back to the non-standard one, I can log into the remote app wep page without issue, but when I try to start the app, I get the error;
Remote Destop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
1 remote access to the server is not enabled
2 the remote computer is turned off
3 the remote computer is not available on the network

Can anyone help me get the remoteapps to work on the non-standard port?
Thanks!

This wasn't the answer I was hoping for, but it may be the best one.  I hear your point about the the scanners out there that can find the port regardless, but I also know I see a lot less attempts on a non-standard port.
