    How do you change default port for Terminal Services Client for Mac?

    I just recently purchased an iMac (yesterday) and I have a question regarding the Microsoft Terminal Services Client. Hopefully this is the correct forum. On my Windows Machine, I have a batch file that looks similar to the following:

    mstsc /v: /f

    mstsc is the Terminal Services Client Executable. refers to the IP address of my Terminal Server
    1234 refers to the port that the Terminal Server is listening On

    I want to create the equivalent batch/command file on my iMac only I don't know how to do that. I can connect to a Terminal Services server from my iMac so long as the Terminal Server is listening on port 3389. The issue that I'm having is that we don't use the default 3389 port and the only way that I know to change that from the client side is to connect via batch/command file using the syntax above.

    I've been a Windows user ever since there was a Windows so the Mac is a steep learning curve. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks a bunch.
