Windows RDP Port Change

Recently I spent hours trying to track down the connection problems with a new image. Turns out that the person wanted the MS RDP connection on another port for security reason. I spent hours trying to fiddle with every setting. Here are some quick notes on how to make the change.

Click on the Start button, then click on "Run...", Then in the box type
regedit
An explorer window will open and it might even open to the correct folder of settings if not then navigate to the following path
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\
Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp
From there you should see the setting for
PortNumber
Double click on it and then change the radio button to Decimal and change to the port that you want it to exist on.
