you to forward the 3550 ports. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Virtual Servers menu and then click Add This Setting.
Under Security in the left hand menu click Firewall Services
You should see the following menu.
to add a service.
Go ahead and name your service. It doesn't really matter what the name is, but something easy to remember would be good. Select tcp or udp under type. If you are unsure of the type just select both. Last put in the Start and Finishing port numbers. If the service only requires one port, put that port number in both the start and the finish box. You may need to setup multiple services, depending upon the number of ports/port ranges the software you want to run requires. Click Save
when you have finished.
Now we need to go to the second section to continue setting up our port forwarding. Under Security in the left hand menu click Rules
Once again you should see the following menu.
Go ahead and click Add
in the Outbound or Inbound services section. If you are unsure whether the program you are using will use these ports for inbound or outbound traffic, repeat steps 7 through 9 for both Inbound and Outbound.
Select the service we previously created. Action should be set to ALLOW always
. Enter the ip address you want to forward these ports to in Send to LAN Server
. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your computer, you should enter the your computers ip address into this box. Wan Users should be set to Any, unless you want to limit who you want to connect to these ports. This would be useful, lets say, if you only wanted your office computer to be able to ftp into your home computer. In that case you would put your office computers ip address in both the start and finish box. Generally log should be set to never, unless of course you want to create a log of network activity.
When you are finished with that configuration go ahead and click Save
When you're finished, click Save near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
