How to move the listening port for RDP (Remote Desktops)

By default, RDP listens on 3389 but I make it a habit to move this to another port to hinder hackers.

A simple registry change is all that is required.

1.Start Registry Editor.
2.Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
3.On the Edit menu, click Modify, and then click Decimal.
4.Type the new port number, and then click OK.
5.Quit Registry Editor.
6.Restart the computer.

Be aware that this mod may affect other remote desktop related services, such as remote help etc.
