You can do so by adding a new registry key listing your new port, by following these steps:

  • Run REGEDIT
  • Export the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp
  • Edit the REG file and change the name of the key to something like: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp-New
  • In the REG file find PortNumber and change it to whatever port you want.
  • Import the REG file back to the registry.
