Default Changing Remote Desktop Port for Client Side

I am just wondering if/how to change the client side port number for Windows Remote Desktop. The firewall will not allow 3389 so I would like to switch it. This is for the client end, not the server end. I know how to change the server end. Basicly changing for the app that connects to the remote desktop(home computer). Thanks.
