Can I add other ports for RDP via group policy in server 2003

I recently turned on the Windows Firewall via the recommended settings at our company, am allowing RDP, but find that the only port open is the default 3389.  I was using several other ports for RDP on several natted computers.  I need to quickly open those other ports in the Windows Firewall to allow those ports as well, and want to do it via the policy.  Can someone tell me how this is done, or if it can be done?  Or, do i have to go and reset the machines to use the default port.
Thanks.

Thanks, but this does not answer my specific question.  The linked article is what i used to turn the firewall on.  I think there is a section in the RDP policy where you can add other ports other than 3389, but i don't have access to the group policy editor right now, just need to know if it's possible to also use 3392, for instance, or if i need to set all the machines involved back to 3389.  Want to proceed as quickly as possible.

I found the setting.  Windows Firewall: Define inbound port execptions. I set my desired ports to enabled in the values there, then gpupdated the machines in question.  Done.
