Opening the firewall on a Draytek router to access the exchange server

I've just setup and configured an exchange server on our network for the first time. I've configured the MX record to point to our static IP address but I need to configure the firewall to foward the request to the exchange server - what do i need to do on a Draytek Vigor 2820 router?

This should do the trick (not the exact model, but the procedure should be similar):-

Once in your administration webpage of the 2820 :
go to
NAT >> Open Ports >> index (1,2, etc) which ever is available or you want to use
select the appropriate server (exchnage server ip address)
Under protocols TCP
port number 25 - 25 (start - end)
Select the wan interface (WAN1 or WAN2)
Make sure you select enable open ports
and click ok
