How to remote into differant computers on your network

Problem: ISP provider gives up one static IP ie(192.168.10.1)
That IP get me to the front door of my router.
My network:
I am running a VMWARE server with multiply copies of Win XP on it.
Each Virtual machine has an IP address lets say in the range of (13.13.13.1 to 13.13.13.3) so that gives me 3 instance of Win Xp
I want to remote into each one seperatly.
I know I can set up my router to point to one of the virtual servers when trying to use Remote Desktop and using the Static IP provided by my ISP.

My question is with only one static IP how can I remote into the other 2 virtual machines?

You need to set up fort forwarding on your Cable / DSL modem that says when a Remote Desktop request comes in, forward it to address X.

The default RDP port is 3389, so you need to forward that port (on your modem / router) to the IP address of the specific Windows XP instance you want to control.

Good Luck
Once you get into one machine from the internet you can open up another RDP session INSIDE of that machine and remote the other machines on the same network.

But the IP address (192.168.10.1) is a private address, you can't see externally at first place.

Even if the internal ip is private, he would use the public ip issued by his ISP then port forwards would send it to the private IP it belongs to.
