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

When you are finished, click the Add button.
