I understand that to access a Mac which is connected via a router, I have to use port forwarding on the router to allow Apple Remote Desktop access though ports 3283, 5900 & 5988 to the first Mac, but how can I also connect to the other Mac?  The only way I can see of doing that is to keep changing the port forwarding settings on the router to connect to one Mac or the other. This seems very inefficient; can it be set up to allow access to both Macs without reconfiguration each time?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
