Access the Windows Registry Editor.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp.
Find the PortNumber key and change its value to the desired port number.
Save the registry settings.
In the RDP client application, specify the new port number in the connection settings, using the format hostname:custom_port.
Ensure that the new port is allowed through your network firewall and router settings. You may need to set up port forwarding to direct incoming traffic on the new port to the appropriate machine.
