I created 5 firewall->port forwarding->rules...
What I wanted was to forward a particular port from the WAN to a particular LAN IP
All 5 showed up in the IPv4 Firewall rules, but only the first line that is enabled works.
If I disable the first line, the 2nd line works...
If I disable the first and 2nd line, then the 3rd line works...
I have tried cycling power and re-booting...no change...

Would you provide a screenshot of your firewall rules?

The reason is that the Service parameter was set to ANY in the forwarding rules. It should be the specific service that you want to forward to the particular host in the LAN.

Thanks again for the quick response....it is getting closer!!
The first line is a Windows remote desktop path. I have not found any service that works except "any".
Right now if I disable the first line, the 2nd line (now HTTP) for the website works! and the final line "any" works!!
Is there a service that should work for windows remote desktop besides "any"?
Lines 3 and 4 are for the FTP server, I have not verified the FTP functionality yet.
Attached is the latest setup that almost works....
Is there a reason the "any" service type doesn't work? Let the port number decide destination?

i just tried the FTP port forwarding lines, and they do not work either.
we just replaced our old Linksys WRT54GX4 with this new RV 120W
all of these port forwarding rules worked prior to the RV switch...
so maybe it is just me trying to configure it properly...

Thanks..., I will disable or delete the last rule and see if FTP is working.
Can you suggest a service type that I should select for Windows remote desktop?

Port 3389 is the default for Windows RDP.

I do not see a RDP service type in the rv 120w port forwarding rules. How do you suggest fill out the port forwarding rule for RDP service?

Thanks, I did not know how the custom service worked.
I added 2 custom services as you suggested...attached file custom.jpg
Then I added them as the service type on the port forwarding page.
It looks nice, but now neither one works in any order..."rvcustomer.jpg"
What should I try next?

If forwarding TCP Port 3389 does not work as expected, please contact Small Business Support Center so they can offer additioanl help.

I see that this is the small business support community.
Can you point me to the small business support center?
I did not know there was a difference, sorry for wasting our time.
Maybe it's time to look at a Juniper solution.
