With default configuration, Windows RDP service is running on port 3389, to protect your server, you can change the RDP port.
 
1. Run "regedit", expand the folders to:
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp
   Find the "Port number" entry and double-click on it. In opened window choose "Decimal" and change "Value data"  to desired port, and click OK.
 
2. Expand the folders to:
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\Wds\rdpwd\Tds\tcp
   Find the "Port number" entry and double-click on it. In opened window choose "Decimal" and change "Value data"  to desired port(this value should be same as above), and click OK.
