    RDP Issues in Windows 8 Pro


    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 2 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. Anyone else has had this issue or a solution?
