How to do port forwarding for microsoft RD

Hello, Im trying to set up a RD gateway so I can use microsoft's remote desktop app for outside of network connections. One prerequisite is to setup port forwarding on my router. I have gone toyhe router's  Device -> Remote access and enabled remote access. When I set the public ip address and gateway port for the remote app, it seems to connect to something asking my password, but after providing this, it fails to connect. Have I set up port forwarding incorrectly for this router?

This page has nothing to do with what you need to do.  You should click the Disable Remote Access button.

Port Forwarding is on the Firewall > NAT/Gaming tab.
