If you are looking for the ports for a different application you can find it by either:
Put a dot into the Manual Service radio button.
Make up a name to put in the Manual Service box. The name does not have any effect on the functionality of the forward, it's simply there so you can know why it was created.
Select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding from the Protocol box.
Enter the same port number to be forwarded into both the External Port and the Internal Port boxes.
Enter the IP address to forward these ports to into the Server IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on a device other than your computer then you can enter your device's IP address into that box.
When you are finished, click the Submit button.
Your ports should now be open. It is time to test them.
