You are now on a page where you are able to create a port forward. Find an empty row of boxes and place a check mark in the small box to the far left.

Next to that, on the right, enter the name of the program you are forwarding these ports for in the box labeled Name. This isn't an important step to the forwarding process, but highly recommended for your future information.

Below that is the IP Address box. You need to enter the internal IP address of the computer you are forwarding these ports to. If your are unsure of how to find your computer's IP address, we have a great guide on the subject, What is my IP Address.

Skip the two middle boxes, and enter the ports you want to forward in the box titled TCP. Enter those same port numbers again in the box labeled UDP. These can be entered as a list, 44,49,65, a range, 80-100, or a combination of the two, 46,12,50-100.

Set the Schedule to Always, and set the Inbound Filter to Allow All.

Finally, click the Save Settings button at the top of the page.
