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 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  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.
