I'm not sure if you can do that on your router.

For doing this I use the proxy mod of Apache to redirect to another computer.

1.)You can't use (dyn)DNS to redirect to certain ports, DNS is used to give a name to an IP address (simply put).
2.) If you have only one public IP you can forward port 1723 just once. What you could do (if your router supports it) is to forward another public port to the different machines on port 1723 (so port 1723 to x.x.x.1:1723, port 1724 to x.x.x.2:1723 and port 1725 to x.x.x.3:1723).

or you can connect to one machine (set this on router) from outside and from that machine just RDP to other using internal IP

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

I  did look at dyndns webhop where you goto

alt.dyndns.org:1723 > witch point my dyndns.org:1823  witch to my ip then on the router point port 1823 ,

but at this point Iam still on port 1823 and port 1723 is  in use .
if i could at point this to my other server some how via an x86 router say ?

Like I said, if your router supports that you can NAT port 1823 on your public IP to port 1723 on an internal address.
So consult your manual or let us know what router you have so we can help figuring this one out.

Webhop....... Interesting, learning something new every day :)
