This is the port forwarding page from your Dlink router.

On this new page, in the first set of empty boxes, put a checkmark in the box to the far left. This is a box that if checked will enable the following port.

Next is the Name box. This is not critical to the forwarding process, but we recommend entering the name of the program you are forwarding this port for.

Below that is the IP Address. This is the IP Address of the computer you are forwarding this port to. For example if you are forwarding these ports to run a particular program on computer A, be sure to use computer A's LAN IP Address here.

Skip the next two boxes on the right, and go directly to the Public, and Private Port boxes. Enter the port number you are forwarding in both of these boxes. It is important that these boxes match.

After that is the Traffic Type. Use the Protocol drop down menu to choose the type of protocol you need to use to forward this port.
