On the Home tab of the AdminTool, you can see all the needed information about your RDPlus server:
With the AdminTool, you can select a different TCP/IP port number for the RDP service to accept connections on. The default one is 3389. You can choose any arbitrary port, assuming that it is not already used on your network and that you set the same port number on your firewalls and on each RDPlus user access programs.
RDPlus includes a unique port forwarding and tunneling capability: regardless the RDP port that has been set, the RDP will also be available on the HTTP and on the HTTPS port number!
If users want to access your RDPlus server outside from your network, you must ensure all incoming connections on the port chosen are forwarded to the RDPlus server.
