    Issues with Remote Desktop and port 3389 on 8.1 PRO


    I cannot get my 8.1 PRO system to establish a Remote Desktop connection on either the Internet or my home LAN.
    Router has port 3389 set for port forwarding, aVast Firewall allows port 3389 in and out.
    Have even tried with aVast turned off but can't get it to work.
    Have run a number of Port Checkers and all show 3389 as locked or unavailable, but unfortunately do not detect whether it is an issue with the router firewall or aVast firewall.

    However, all is not lost; have discovered a free application named Team Viewer which does the job very nicely and is a lot easier to set up.

    Have you gone into the registry and changed the listening port to something besides 3389 to see if you can get rdp to work from a different port?

    No, once I discovered TeamViewer I decided to forget RDP.
