On this new page, find an empty row of boxes and place a checkmark in the small box on the left side of the page. This is enabling the rule you are about to create.

Next is the Name box. Although it isn't really important what you enter here, we suggest entering the name of the program you are forwarding these ports for.

Below that is the IP Address. You need to enter the local IP address of the 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 if you are unsure.

To Forward a Single Port

Enter the port number in the left and right boxes of both the Public Port, and the Private Port.

To Forward a Range of Ports

Enter the lowest number of the range in the left boxes of both the Public Port, and Private Port. Enter the highest number of the range in the right boxes of both the Public Port, and the Private Port.

In the Traffic Type drop down menu, choose the type of transport or protocol you want to use to forward these ports.
