Remote into a second computer on LAN

I have a Server 2012 machine that I regularly remote into using RDP.  I also have a static IP address and an attached domain.

I have a second machine on my network that I would like to remote into as well.  I have tried to alter the port (from 3389 to 3390) which works in some networks, but one of the networks I am on regularly does not have 3390 outgoing open.

My question...is there a way to use a subdomain or the firewall (seperate device) or server 2012 to route my 3389 request to the other machine?

If its proving tricky with firewalls why not just RDP to the server and then RDP from there to the PC?

Another approach is to use RDP Gateway (see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd560672(v=ws.10).aspx for details). It uses HTTPS connections instead of RDP, but that should be better anyway, as HTTPS is almost always allowed to pass firewalls.
