First, find an empty row of boxes, and put a check mark in the small box on the far left. Checking this box, enables the port forward you are about to create.

Moving to the right, enter the name of the program you are forwarding these ports for in the Name box.

Below that is the IP Address. Each computer in your local network has it's own internal IP address, you need to enter the internal IP address of the specific computer you are forwarding these ports to. What is my IP Address is a great guide on how to find your computer's internal IP address.

Skip the middle two drop down boxes and place your cursor in the left box of the Public Port. If you are forwarding a single port, enter this number in the left and right Public Port boxes, each box should read the same. Enter that same number in both the Public Port boxes also.

To forward a range of ports, enter the lowest number of the range in the left Private Port and Public Port boxes. Enter the highest number of the range in the right Private Port, and Public Port boxes.

The last thing you need to enter in the row is the Traffic Type. Use the available drop-down menu to choose the type of transport or protocol you have to use to forward these ports.

That's it, the only thing left to do is click the Save Settings button near the top of the page.
