    Changing RDP port after upgrade


    I had my port set to 443, and it worked. I cannot seem to RDP on that port, or the default port. The firewall is OFF. Any ideas? The port was changed in registry already when I went to double check, rebooted a few times, still no luck. Does the new smart filter thingy block something?

    Did some quick troubleshooting. I disabled remote desktop, and watched netstat -a, and it stopped listening on 443. I then enabled it on 443, and it started listening again, so I know the port is indeed open on the box, and not in use. I am trying to RDP over the LAN, not internet too! The box responds to pings.

    I assume you're setting it to 443 in order to bypass firewall rules at work or school so you can remote to your home PC. This is a lot easier to set in your internet gateway/router if it supports it. Many GW/Firewalls have an option to specify the external and internal port of forwarded ports.

    Have you verified that Remote Desktop is enabled? By default, it's off in 10 after an upgrade.

    I've enabled and disabled a few times. It is clearly registering the change as netstat showed listening on 443. I've tried default as well with no luck.

    To add, I am running Windows 10 pro. Do I need to have remote assistance checked? If I recall, it was not, but I never thought that was a requirement before.

    If you can see 443 is listening, and your windows firewall is off, then your problem is with your router. Perhaps your IP address changed (internal IP) and your router is no longer forwarding to the right IP.

    It responds to pings, resolves on hostname though. I have tried connecting based on IP and hostname for fun.

    That's your external router responding to the ping, not your internal computer.

    Hmmm, what? I checked my router's mac list, it is showing the right box still. This only started right after the upgrade to win 10.

    What does your mac list have to do with anything? I'm talking about the port forwarding.

    You said that was my external router responding to pings, and not my computer? My external router is hooked directly up to the computer in question. I unplug the ethernet, and it does not respond to pings. I said the MAC list on the router is correct, because I assumed you thought my router 10.10.5.1 didn't know where my server was, 10.10.5.20 (static).
