I have an XServe at my business running Mac OS X Server version 10.3.9 I have remote desktop 2.2 installed on it and also remote desktop 2.2 installed on my Powerbook laptop. I enabled all remote desktop sharing in the system preferences sharing part. I also have enabled the port 5900 and 3283 on the router. The firewall is also turned off on the server.

The problem is with this configuration it works fine from home when i connect but i can only use port 5900 for a few days then we have to give it back to someone at the office for there VNC so i will need to be on port 5901. How do i tell the ARD or Settings on the Mac OS X Server to use 5901 instead of 5900.

I know how to use 5901 if it is enabled on the router and on the laptop from home i just have to put :5901 after the IP but i dont know how to tell the server to use 5901 instead of the default 5900.
