The registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ORL\WinVNC3\PortNumber will
allow you to change the port number, however if you want to use a port
number greater than 5999 things get slightly more difficult; refer to this
post on using port 80:

Jonathan Morton <chromi "at" cyberspace.org> writes:
OK, suppose you want to use port 80, which is display number -5820.  You
need to find the value (2^32)-5820 to enter.  2^32 is 4,294,967,296 in
decimal, so the number you enter into the Registry is 4,294,961,476.
