Remote desktop alternates ports


C

Craig

I was asked to setup 4 remote desktop connections in our network. I have 1
external IP to use. I was thinking of using alternative ports from the
same exteranl host.
example, I forward all port 3389 to PC A all port 3390 to PC B etc...
Are there any issues with this setup with XP Pro SP2?
The clients are not very technical, is there an easy way to setup their
client so it defaults to the correct port?

thanks

How to modify Terminal Server's accessing port

By default Terminal Server and Windows 2000 Terminal Services uses TCP port 3389 for client connections. However, in a case you have more remote users need to access the TS via a router, you may want to modify the TS TCP port.

To modify the default port for all new connections created on the Terminal Server, follow these steps:

1.
Run Regedt32 and go to this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp

2.
Click the "PortNumber" subkey and the value should be 00000D3D (hex for 3389). Modify the port number, for example 3390, in Hex and save the new value.
