Enter the name of the program into the Comment box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded is be a good idea.
Enter the IP address of the device that you want to forward ports to into the Local IP Address box. This can be either the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another device on your network.
If you are forwarding a range of ports then you need to enter the lowest number of that range into the left hand Local Port and Public Port boxes and the highest number of that range into the right hand Local Port and Public Port boxes.
