    here is what I did:
    1. Change the port number (3389 to some number) on the server thru the registry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetControlTerminal ServerWinStationsRDP-TcpPortNumber
    2. Create an inbound firewall rule on the server to allow the traffic thru the new port (some number)

    3. In our Meraki firewall, under the Forwarding Rules, change the public port to the new port number (some number) for the rdp forwarding rule.

    That did not do it for me. I could not remote to the server after the change. I don’t know what I am missing here. I change it back to default (3389) and the remote access functions normal now but I would really like to change the rdp port to make it more secure to public. Could anyone tell me what did I miss here ? TIA.
