Problems configure Remote Desktop with port forwarding

I will give you an idea of my set-up then what I am trying to do and what I have done.

I have a BT router with Static IP, two wired computers, both have DHCP IPís but BT Router makes static IPís assuming computers MAC address donít change (according to BT)

I am trying to connect using Remote Desktop and port forwarding for each PC e.g.

The port is open when checking via but when trying to connect via Remote Desktop it times out/doesnít connect.

I have set each PC to listen on the respective port in regedit but still nothing.

Windows Firewall is also configured to allow connections through each port.

Still nothing?

Any ideas of where Iím going wrong?

Have since reset the port listening to deafult 3389 and allowed this port through my router and it works.

So therefore the problem is when I change the port? Any ideas??
