In the realm of remote desktop access, understanding the default RDP port is crucial for ensuring secure connections. After describing default RDP port and basics about it, this article delves into the intricacies of TSplus Advanced Security. Join me in shedding light on its features and how default RDP port can be protected if not changed or closed.


Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a vital tool for accessing servers and desktops remotely. However, the default RDP port can be a vulnerability if not managed properly. This is where TSplus Advanced Security comes into play.

Default RDP Port: A Potential Weakness

Traditionally, RDP relies on the default port 3389, which means its number is common knowledge, and that port 3389 is set-up in advance for RDP as implied by the word “default”. Consequently, it is susceptible to be targeted by unauthorized access attempts and cyber threats. TSplus Advanced Security recognizes this vulnerability and addresses it through standard and advanced features.

Options at hand to Protect the Default RPD Port

Short of changing your default port for RDP connections, there are a few lines to follow. Changing port 3389 for another is easily done, but this default needs to be modified properly (for example taking care not to steal a port reserved to another purpose). Also, the new port has to be configured for all and any involved parts of your network.

Other options include making sure you’ve enabled NLA (Network-Level Authentication), using a VPN, implementing account lockout policies and more. Plus, of course, you can turn to TSplus Advanced Security for a complete solution bringing together all the strong options your infrastructure really needs.

TSplus Advanced Security: Strengthening Remote Access and RDP

TSplus Advanced Security stands out as a comprehensive solution designed to fortify the protection for remote access, application publishing and server farms. Let's explore how it transforms default RDP port security so you can rest easy.

Three Great Features Which Help Protect RDP

Protect RDP Port 3389 or any other configuration of RDP and remote connexions, TSplus Advanced Security is on hand to guard your network and data.

1. Homeland Access Protection

One notable feature is Homeland Access Protection, which intelligently monitors and controls TCP network connections. It detects unauthorized access attempts from countries you have not allowed. Thus, TSplus Advanced Security provides an additional layer of defense beyond the default RDP port.

2. Bruteforce Attacks Defender

With the Bruteforce Attacks Defender, TSplus Advanced Security mitigates the risk of brute-force attacks on RDP login credentials. It monitors and automatically blocks IP addresses attempting multiple failed login attempts, enhancing overall security. You set the quantities of failed attempts and other parameters according to your network’s need and the user and group permissions involved.

3. Endpoint Protection and Device Control

TSplus Advanced Security offers Endpoint Protection , allowing administrators to control user devices and limit access from each user according to their specific allocated devices. This ensures that only authorized user-device combinations can establish connections. That way, TSplus Advanced Security impressively reduces risks associated with default ports as well as those relating to stolen devices or credentials.

Changing the Default RDP Port: Is it Still Necessary?

In the past, changing the default RDP port was a common practice to enhance security. However, with TSplus Advanced Security , this manipulation might become obsolete. The product's multifaceted approach to security makes default ports more robust and any attack much more complicated for hackers to carry out. Thus, our software will shield default ports and indeed the whole of your network, minimizing the need for manual port adjustments.

Why TSplus Advanced Security?

1. Comprehensive Security Events Monitoring

TSplus Advanced Security provides real-time monitoring of security events. The Events window displays operations performed by the software, giving administrators a clear view of the system's security status.

2. Hacker IP Protection

Leveraging community-sourced information, Hacker IP Protection maintains a blacklist of known threats, safeguarding systems from online attacks, malware, and cybercrime activities.

3. User-Friendly Permissions Management

The Permissions functionality allows administrators to manage and inspect user and group privileges effectively. This granular control ensures precise restrictions on file, folder, registry, and printer access.

Change Default RDP Port in TSplus

To change the default RDP port in TSplus, simply follow these steps:

  1. Open the TSplus AdminTool.

  2. Navigate to the Home tab.

  3. Look for the section related to Server Management.

  4. Find the option to change the RDP port number.

  5. Click on the pencil button next to the “RDP Port” to edit the port number.

  6. Enter the new port number that you wish to use for RDP connections. (Make sure that the new port number is not already in use on your network.)

  7. Save the changes.

Corelated Settings When Changing the Default Port

Note that after changing the RDP port, you must also update your firewall settings to allow traffic through the new port. Additionally, if you are accessing the server from outside your local network, you will need to create a port forwarding or port redirection rule for the new RDP port in your router.

Remember: all TSplus user access programs will need configuring to use the new port number. TSplus boasts a unique port forwarding and tunnelling capability, which means that regardless of the RDP port that has been set, the RDP will also be available on the HTTP and HTTPS port numbers.

Important Security Reminder

It’s important to note that changing the RDP port is a security measure that can help obscure the port from unauthorized scanning. Nonetheless, it does not replace the need for robust security practices. Examples of best practice in cyber-security: use strong passwords, enable two-factor authentication, keep your systems up to date with security patches.

Conclusion on What is the Default RDP Port?

In conclusion, understanding the default RDP port is pivotal for securing remote connections. TSplus Advanced Security not only addresses the vulnerabilities associated with the default port but also introduces a robust security framework that makes manual port adjustments less necessary. By leveraging its standard and advanced features , users can significantly enhance the security of their remote access infrastructure.

Stay tuned for more insights into TSplus Advanced Security and how it revolutionizes remote access security.
