    In most routers, a port forwarding rule take the following information:
    Application Name: The label for the forwarding rule.Start and End Port: The application's port(s), e.g. 80 for HTTP. This port will generally be open only when a web server of some sort is running on the machine.Many routers will allow you to forward an array of ports with a single rule.
    Protocol: The protocol (TCP, UDP or Both) for the forwarding rule. In its simplest form, a protocol can be defined as the rules governing the syntax, semantics, and synchronization of communicationThe protocol depends on the type of service you are providing (e.g. webservers use TCP).
    IP Address: The internal IP address of the destination device in the LAN, usually beginning with 192.168.x. Static IP addresses are manually assigned to a computer by an administrator. The exact procedure varies according to platform. This contrasts with dynamic IP addresses, which are assigned either by the computer interface or host software itself, as in Zeroconf, or assigned by a server using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).If your router dynamically assigns internal IPs with DHCP, you will need to configure the server device to use an internal static IP address.
