Select an available connection using the Interface drop down box.

Use the Protocol drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding.

If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the External Start Port, Internal Port and the External End Port boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the External Start Port, Internal Port box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the External End Port box.

Enter the ip address to forward these ports to into the Internal Host box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your computer, you should enter your computer's ip address into that box.

Enter the name of the program into the Mapping Name box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.

When you are finished, click the Submit button.

And that is it! You are done!
