I have Windows 2008 R server with remote desktop services set up. I can use remote desktop over internet, but for that I have to forward 3389 port on the router to that server.Basically it means, that RD still uses 3389 port to connect to my server. In the environment, where I want to use remote access 3389 is blocked and only option is to connect via 80 and 443 ports. What would be solution for that? (Logmein etc. is not an option).
Computer OS: Other
Greetings,Welcome to Just Answer.My name is Jason and I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.
The easiest way around this is to change the external port to port 80 or 443, but use port 3389 for the internal port when you setup the port forwarding rules on the router.
Does that make sense?

The solution worked, thank you! Unfortunately it did not solve the initial problem: connecting to the server from the the restricted network: RDP client does not work anyway, but it does work with the new settings from other, open network.If you have any idea on how to implement it, please let me know. Otherwise, thanks again for your help!
