For those whom are looking for Windows 7 or 2008 Server listening ports...

Computer\HKeyLocalMachine\System\CurrentControlSet001\Services\SharedAccess\Defaults\Firewall
Policy\Firewall Rules\

(On the right side of the pane)    -------->    RemoteDesktop-In-TCP

Look for Port Number 3389, Right Click, click Modify, on that line,
and pop in your favorite non-standard.

Make sure to hit the appropriate firewall setting, Public, Private,
etc while you are at it....

Windows 7 Specific:
HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet/Control/TerminalServer/WinStatsion/RDP-Tcp/PortNumber
Change Decimal Number to something other than 3389.
