Symptom

You cannot connect because the default port has been changed for security reasons

Cause

Works as designed

Solution

RDP stands for remote desktop protocoll. You connect from the command line with the following command:

mstsc /v:lubbyserver:<your-new-port>

The default port is 3389. You can check this with the following:

mstsc /v:lubbyserver:3389

With the parameter /f the client will start in full screen mode. You can open a command line console with /console

 mstsc /v:lubbyserver:2220 /console

You should have altered the port on 2220 before!
