Multi Port Forwarding on TP-Link Archer D7 modem

I am wondering if anyone can tell me if I am able to set-up multi port forwarding on a TP-Link Archer D7 modem.  I have a client who is set-up on a peer to peer network, so no Server to manage incoming connections.

They want to allow 2-3 staff to be able to access the individual computers from home.
I am presuming we can set it up in the modem.

So set-up different external port numbers (eg 3389,3390,3391) and connect each of those external port numbers to the 3389 internal port to each computers static IP.

Is this something that can be done on all modems today, or only certain modems?

I have seen this set-up on a Linksys modem previously.

That would be insecure because the ports above are common access ports.

Better to use a router (not a modem) and set up secure VPN access. Cisco RVxx routers can do this economically.

I'm not sure what OS the servers are running behind your router or modem. But you can try changing the default RDP listener ports on each machine individually using RDP Wrapper libraries ... I haven't tried it though but you can do a little research on this :)
