Re: Cannot edit registry the change remote desktop port number
I am trying to do the same thing...changing my remote desktop port to 3390.
I have replaced all the portnumber entries in regedit to 3390, but still
nothing. I have opened the port on the router. 3389 works great on one of
the computers on my network, but I can't get it work on the Vista box. What
am I missing?
