Connecting Using the IP Address and New Port

You’re now ready to make the connection to the Remote Desktop host via the Internet. Here are the steps to follow:

1.
Connect to the Internet.

Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, Remote Desktop Connection. The Remote Desktop Connection dialog box appears.

3.
In the Computer text box, type the name or the IP address of the remote computer and the alternative port you specified in step 1, separated by a colon. Here’s an example that uses the IP address 123.45.67.8 and port number 1234:

123.45.67.8:1234

Set up your other Remote Desktop options as needed. For example, click Options, display the Experience tab, and then select the appropriate connection speed, such as Modem (28.8 Kbps), Modem (56 Kbps), or Broadband (128 Kbps–1.5 Mbps).

5.
Click Connect.
