You can change the default port of 3389 to something else if you want the extra security. 1. Start Registry Editor. 2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber 3. On the Edit menu, click Modify, and then click Decimal. Type the new port number, and then click OK. Quit Registry Editor. 4. Restart the computer. | Report abuse SR-71 Blackbird Windows 7 Authority June 1, 2011 3:56:05 PM Thanks Hawkeye! | Report abuse Related ressources Remote Desktop set-up - Forum Setting up remote desktop - Forum Problems setting up port forwarding for Remote Desktop - Forum Setting up Remote Desktop - Forum Setting Up VPN for Remote Desktop Sharing on the Same Netw.. - Forum Ask the community Publish Hawkeye22 Windows 7 Authority June 1, 2011 4:03:17 PM SR-71 Blackbird said:Thanks Hawkeye!
