Changing the default listening port (3389) to a custom port has only required a simple registry key edit on previous versions of Windows. On Windows 8 Pro, at least on the 3 machines I have here now, editing the registry does not work.
Even with a custom port number, you can still only connect to the machines using the default port, netstat -ao still shows the listening port as 3389, even after changing the port number in the registry. Anyone else has had this issue or a
solution? This is definitely a Windows 8 issue, I've done this successfully dozens of times on XP Pro, Vista Bus, and 7 Pro.
I've also had a Windows tech remote in to one of the machines and they tried the same registry edit.
