Manually Entering Settings into the Virtual Server

To manually enter settings, enter the IP address in the space provided
for the internal (server) machine, the port(s) required to pass, select the
port type (TCP or UDP), and click Apply Changes. Each inbound port
entry has two fields with 5 characters maximum per field that allows a
start and end port range, e.g. [xxxxx]-[xxxxx]. For each entry, you can
enter a single port value by filling in the two fields with the same value
(e.g. [7500]-[7500] or a wide range of ports (e.g. [7500]-[9000]). If you
need multiple single port value or mixture of ranges and a single value,
you must use multiple entries up to the maximum of 20 entries (e.g.
1. [7500]-[7500], 2. [8023]-[8023], 3. [9000]-[9000]). You can only pass
one port per internal IP address.
