I have a 550, but setup wise, it is the same.

When I get into work in the morning, I will take a look.

Posting this now, so I will be able to fine this then..... B-)

The longer I have the watchguard, the more I miss my SonicWall.

I hate the watchguard box, but I came into this company and they already had it. I know more about Cisco than this box.
hope you can assist. Thank you

I see it is set as a proxy

but don't remember exactly how right now.

this is the single worst piece of crap firewall I have ever seen, and the FIRST graphical firewall that you can't just sit down and use.

The support sucksass as well as their site, too. X-(

I will try to look at it closer this afternoon. Sorry nothing good to report yet.

I was playing around with watchguard and finally figured out how to do portforwarding.

Not sure if it works the same way on all watchguards but this is for a Frebox x750e

1:log into watchguard
2:open Policy Manager
3: select the + sign or edit add policy
4: Under Add Policy select New
5: Name your New Policy Template my case VNC
6: whatever you want under description.
7: Under Protocols select Add
8: Type: my case again "Single Port"
9: Under Protocol: TCP
10: Server Port: my case 5500
11: select OK. then OK again. thats just to create a template of the port you want to forward. Then you have to do the following.

12:under Add Policies you are going to see a folder name Custom. You should see the template you created. My case VNC.

13:Select the policy and click on add way at the bottom of that box.

14:the Tab Policy : From remove any-Trusted and Add: ANY.

15: To: select Add should use Add NAT make sure you know what your external IP address is.

16 Internal IP: the computer you want to use to forward your port.

17: Port 5500 click on to all and save.

thats all I had to do.. kinda of blindly but it worked for my 10th tried.
