HI,

I try to change the listening port of remote desktop on xp machine by
following the article http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=306759 but
after i change the registry i do netstat -an , and i still see the
listening port is 3389 (default listening port).

I wonder if any service to restart will refresh the listening port to
the one assigned in registry? I don't want to restart that computer as
it was dual/multiple boot , off-site and winxp isn't the first one on
the boot up menu...


thx in advance.

Just a shot in the dark, but would ipconfig /renew do?

Or maybe that 'repair connection' in the task panel of Network Connections?
That seems to do more stuff.

hmm, i have tried both, but like i expected it doesn't make a
difference.

ipconfig /renew seems only to refresh the network interface. But the
listening port is usually control by a particular service (or server ,
perhaps?). Refreshing NIC connection , doesn't make any difference to
the running service/server.

But thasnk for the thought.... hope someone else come out with another
thought....

AFAIK you *MUST* reboot after making that change...
