static ports for localhost

I've noticed that when making a native Windows 7 RDC connection through Remote Utilities, the localhost port changes every time (ie localhost:38427, localhost:18303...) Is there a way to assign a static local port for a connection? My hope was to be able to save a Windows RDC session with saved settings and launch it from an RDC shortcut on the desktop after Viewer is launched. As is, every time I connect with RDC it generates a new connection based off the dynamic port. Is this possible?

Thanks,
R

Hello,

Thank you for your post.

Is there a way to assign a static local port for a connection?

No, you cannot specify a static port, it should be dynamically assigned.

My hope was to be able to save a Windows RDC session with saved settings and launch it from an RDC shortcut on the desktop after Viewer is launched.

Create an RU connection, right click on it and select Properties. Navigate to the RDP section.

Click Configure, set your options and click Save. Close the properties window. Now you can right click on the connection and select Create shortcut on the desktop. You will be able to create a shortcut for a specific connection and specific connection mode (in this case RDP).

Hope that helps.
