Changing the default MS-Windows Terminal Service 2003 port

May i have to change the default port (3389) of the windows terminal service 2003 into server and into RDP client application to connect onto other port number (3390).
Because i have a NAT router which tansefer the inbound connections to terminal server1 also i have anther terminal server2 and i need to NAT inbound connections to it through the same NAT router like this:

public IP= on port 3389 NAT to private IP= on port 3389    terminal server1
public IP= on port 3390 NAT to private IP= on port 3390    terminal server2

Start Registry Editor.
2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
3. On the Edit menu, click Modify, and then click Decimal.
4. Type the new port number, and then click OK.  
5. Quit Registry Editor.

Good Limjianan:
But this is for changing RDP port into client side application.
How can i change the terminal service port also into server 2003 to connect to.
Andrew DavisManagerCommented:
what you are saying doesnt make a lot of sence, but that may be your english.
what you have been told will change the port that the server listens on for RDP/terminal server connections from the clients.
The clients will need to connect by typeing in :3390 (for term server 2) after their normal connection string.
Click connect.
this will connect them to the second terminal server through port 3390
