    Hello

    I would like to change the default port that my Telnet client listens on to another port. Most content on the net does not have the details as required , so i have turned to you all for assistance. I need to change it from 23 to 3990

    Common communication ports

    TCP port 23 is reserved for Telnet client and server communication. By default, most Telnet clients initiate communication on port 23, and most Telnet servers listen on port 23 for connection requests. You can change the default port assignments with some Telnet client and server software, such as Windows Server 2003 Telnet Client and Server, but port 23 is the universally accepted port for Telnet communication.
