what I want to do is change the port I accept connections to my terminal server to a custom port.   however I only want to do this for my remote users.   Is it possible to redirect the custom port through the firewall.

Depends on the firewall. Can you provide details?
It really does not matter that you have a 'custom' port on the outside. The service will still be recognized by an port scanner.

if that defeats the purpose then I guess it doesn't matter.   I need to change the listening port on the terminal server than right?

Whatever port you change it to either on the outside, or on the server, it will be recognized by a port scanner. If you have a web service running on port 1741 instead of the standard port 80, a port scanner will report "hey, there's a web service running on port 1741".
The best protection is to use a VPN for LAN access and then use the private IP address of the server for terminal services..
