Remote Desktop doesn't use port 80 so no it wouldn't work. 3389 is the port you want and this is documented on

Thanks. What about for the internet? What port would that be? I enter my ip address into firefox and I get my router config, but I want the website on my server.

oky, so you have your webserver setup and running If you want outside world to visit your webserver you need to have a static IP from your ISP or a DDNS service. Assuming you have configured your webserver and local DNS.
Register a domain name, setup your DNS records  to look at your www trafic to your static IP. You are done.

I see your pictures, on the first picture WAN users should not be restricted to one IP, this should be ANY or ALL.

It's normal for a domestic router to redirect to its config page if you try to access your own webserver using your external IP address when from inside the LAN.

These routers only do port forwarding from incoming connections from the WAN side, not the LAN side.

One way to have this working is to either run a DNS server inside your LAN (risky, configuration wise) or simply update your HOSTS file to point to your LAN address when using the domain.

I recommend you use a domain name - you can buy one or use a free one from and use it in your HOSTS file for example.
