How do I access my Windows Dedicated Server?

You get access to your Windows Dedicated Server via a secure RDP connection.

RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) is a proprietary protocol from Microsoft to control Windows computers remotely. The RDP service is normally provided on port TCP 3389 and has a 128bit encryption. It is recommended to change the default port 3389.

Changing the port TCP 3389

  • You must have administrator rights to change the port.
  • Start the program regedit
  • Got to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\
  • Select the port 3389 and overwrite it with a free port of your choose (Wiki: Free Ports).
  • In the next step you have to configure the Windows Firewall.
  • Open the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.
  • Create new Inbound and a new Outbound Rules.
  • Set the new defined Port as fix Port for TCP and UDP for the RDP-connection.
