    Configure routes on your border network router for whatever private networks you put behind this new internal router. Each router needs to understand the "next hop" address to get to a destination, but doesn't need to know anything else in order to route the packets.

    Depends on the addressing you use.  If all of your hosts have internal addresses you will need to use PAT on the router to translate ports.

    x.x.x.x outside IP

    x.x.x.x port 33891 - internal IP 1 port 3389
    x.x.x.x port 33892 - internal IP 2 port 3389

    If they are windows boxes that you are running.  Something along those lines would work if you only have 1 public IP address.

    The easiest way is to setup a VPN. Your remote computer will now be on the network and you can use LAN ips to communicate.
