I'm looking for help configuring Windows 7 (RTM) firewall to allow traffic for an alternate Remote Desktop listening port in the most secure way possible
. I know how to just open up the port completely, which works, but I'd rather not do that if I can just open it up for the Remote Desktop program.
I don't seem to be able to just "copy" the built-in Remote Desktop rule and change the port because the port number cannot be edited in some of the built in rules (or copies thereof, I guess). If it matters, I need to be able to access this port with both "old" and "new" versions of Remote Desktop (from an XP machine, as well as another windows 7 machine, for example).
Can anyone offer any assistance or otherwise offer any advice for my situation?
