Using remote Desktop on 2 servers

Ok i have a Windows 2003 server and a Windows 2000 Server. Is there a way to make it so i could log into either of them servers. When i use remote desktop now it will log me into the 2003 server because the wan ip address is pointing to this server. Can i make it point to both? If not is there a way around that? Thanks for the help.

i assume you only have one external IP address?

Bydefault Remote desktop operates on port 3389 on both 2000 and 2003.  You will have to change this on the 2000. Then set up port forwarding on your router to port forward any traffic destined for port X on your WAN IP to be forwared to the IP address of your 2000 server where port X is the port that you designate as the 2000's remote desktop port.  You change this in the registry, give me a minute and ill give you a link.

Will the people who connect to it have to change there port #? How will the clients computer know which one to go to when they remote in? Will they have to put in the external ip address and then a :  <-- and the internal ip address of the 2000 server. Something like this?
