Allowing Remote Access Using A Blekin Pre-n router

I am trying to allow remote access to a Windows XP machine.
I am using a Belkin Pre-N Router.
I set the Virtual Server to point to the correct IP address on the network.
I Set the Inbound Port to 3389 and then Chose TCP and then there is a setting for Private Port, I made thast 3389 to 3389.
But I still can't get it through...am I doing it wrong or missing something?

I made a mistake - I have it so one computer can get in okay, it is when I add another that I can't get it to work.
The Router tells me the same port is shared by another IP...the Question should be - Is there another port I can use to allow additional people to reach different computers?

Yes, change the listening port on the second PC that you want to connect to using this instruction http://www.petri.co.il/change_terminal_server_listening_port.htm  Then add the port number after the servername using a colon in your remote desktop connection   [servername:port].  Do another virtual server configuration like you did for the first one in the router.
