Non-standard RDP connection port.
One possible problem with the connection is using a non-standard RDP port on the remote Windows server.
If you can connect to a remote server via IPMI or other remote connection means, you can check which port the RDP uses.
To do this, you need to do the following:
Open the editor (regedit.exe) and go to the
Find the parameter named PortNumber. This specifies the port for the RDP connection. (The default port is 3389)
If the remote server uses a non-standard port, you will need to specify the IP and port when connecting.
In case you cannot connect to the remote server, you can use the Nmap utility to determine the port to connect to.
nmap -Pn IP-server
Nmap can also be used for WIndows.
For more information about installation, and how to use it, visit https://nmap.org/book/inst-windows.html.
In order to change the port to standard or non-standard, you need to go through the steps specified in section 1, only now open the PortNumber parameter, select Decimal, and specify the port.
Note: If you use a non-standard port, you will need to open the port you specify in PortNumber. This can be done in the Windows Firewall settings.
