I want to setup 5 computers on my LAN for people to be able to access their
remote desktop.

If I direct the ports of my firewall to a particular IP address, then all
users will be directed to that IP. How do I set it up so people can choose
what computer they connect to behind the fire wall? Is there a console that
will display available computers?

Thanks
Merry Christmas

They could also access their desktops through a VPN tunnel...

Get a firewall or router that acts as a VPN endpoint and let them VPN
into your network and access anything they want - simple, easy.

The D-Link DI-804HV can act as a simple PPTP endpoint for multiple
connections - if you need a suggestion for a unit.
