Is the MW/OB port setting configurable or is it fixed?

Can you change the port that Mouse without Borders (MW/OB) uses? My company firewall policy only allows certain ports to be open. I was able to change this when using Synergy but I don't see any way to do it in MW/OB.

Yes but not via UI, please run this (in all machine) and restart the app (let's say you want to use port 12345):
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MouseWithoutBorders /v TcpPort /t REG_DWORD /d 54321
You must use the same port in all machines!

Did this change recently? I can't get the lovely MM to work on a different port. And guess what the original port is conflicting with? Azure Emulator!!  Help!!!
