Connect to custom port

Hi, it seems like Terminals cannot cope with connections on custom ports. I have some Terminal Servers running on custom ports, not the default port 3389. Usually I connect with the following syntax:

mstsc /v:<SERVERNAME>:PortNumber

But the '<SERVERNAME>:PortNumber' does not work in Terminals. Can anyone comment on this?

You can define the port in the connection setting. There is a tab page named "Advanced". You will find the "Remote Server Port" field.

Oops, and I was certain I had looked through all the options...

Thank you!

Old thread I know but.... It would be nice if we could set a custom port for HTTP and HTTPS as well.

You can specify the custom port directly in the url. Exmaple: "" where 8888 is the custom port number.
