Is there a way to port forward an external port to a different internal port

I would like to setup a VPN to one of my home computers.  VPN by default uses port 1723.  I would like to use a different external port so that malicious programs that scan the internet will not expect VPN to be running on the port I choose.  I tried setting up this port forward directly on my XB3 at but was directed to use xFi instead.  The xFi interface appears to only allow you to specify a single port number which is used for both external and internal.

Log into your modem, and go to the advanced options. You should see "Port triggering" as something you can set. In there you can configure an external port to forward to a different internal port.
