I would like to connect to multiple pcs within my organization useing RDP from outside.

I have set two PCs up and set one to listen on the default port of 3389 and the other on port 3390.

I have set the router to send port 3389 to the first PC and 3390 to the second.  

I use MSTSC and type in my IP address for the business from my home as follows:


It just times out.

If I use the default 3389 port it works fine.

What am I missing??
