Default Changing RDP port in windows 2000 Pro

Hello

I wanna setup my home pc to allow RDP from other machines. Unfortunately my flatmate also uses this on the default port, so I thought no problem, I'll just set it on a different port and add that to the router.

The problem is, the registry entry for the RDP port number doesn't exist on my windows 2000 setup. I dont even think RDP server side is installed. I have the client program, I can RDP to work from my home pc, but not the other way around.

Anyone know how I enable/what to install to enable RDP connection on Windows 2000 ? And how to change the default port. I'm stuck using VNC at the moment which is ok.. but its nowhere near as fast as RDP.

cheers,

I don't think Win2k supports RD as a server. Terminal Services is the Win2k equivalent, which does use RDP.
