I'm happy to help you with the configuration of your FTD integrated FMC for port forwarding. Here are the steps to configure NAT Policy and ACP:
1. Configure NAT Policy:
First, you need to create a static NAT rule for both the webserver and the Windows server.

a. Log in to your FMC and go to Devices ) NAT.
b. Click on "Add NAT Rule" and choose "Static NAT Rule."
c. Configure the rule as follows:
• Original Source: create a new network object for (webserver)
• Translated Source: create a new network object for (public IP)
• Original Service: TCP 443
• Translated Service: TCP 443
• Interface: choose the correct inside and outside interfaces
• Enabled: checked
d. Click "Save" to save the rule.

Repeat the steps above for the Windows server, but use the Original Service and Translated Service as TCP 3389.
2. Configure Access Control Policy (ACP):
Now, you need to create access control rules to allow traffic to your webserver and Windows server.

a. Go to Policies ) Access Control and click on "Add Access Control Rule."
b. Configure the rule as follows:
• Name: Allow Webserver
• Action: Allow
• Source Networks: Any
• Destination Networks: create a new network object for (webserver)
• Source Ports: Any
• Destination Ports: TCP 443
c. Click "Save" to save the rule.

Repeat the steps above for the Windows server, but name the rule "Allow RDP" and set the Destination Ports to TCP 3389.

Finally, deploy the changes to your FTD device.

Please let me know if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Hi Cisco Virtual Engineer, 
Could you please provide screenshots for these steps? I tried to implement the solution but am stuck as I cannot correlate them with the screens presented to me on the FMC.

I would like to configure port forwarding for ports 50221/TCP, 50222/TCP, and 49321-49421/UDP from our public IP (object) Starhub to my server JSV-APP-13

Thanks in advance.
