Need to open a port on Verizon FIOS

I need to open up a port for inbound traffic and I use Verizon FIOS.

I have attached the Port Forwarding menu so you could tel me what values I need to set in the few fieldds there.

Specify Public IP Address (leave blank, unless the inbound traffic is coming from a single source with a static IP address [one that never changes] )

Specify Network IP Address (this is the IP Address of the computer traffic will be directed to)

Protocols: (usually HTTP, UDP, or TDP - specific to the application that's sending the inbound traffic from the source computer outside your network)

Forward to port: (will be the port the traffic will be directed to)

Schedule (Always - set to leave this port open at all times)

What is it that you're trying to set up, anyway? If you're specific about the purpose or even the application , I can get more specific as to what settings you need.

You need the address of the machine you want the port forwarded to, as well as the port # to forward.

You should not need the Internet address box checked.

Maybe Port Forwarding was the wrong suggestion.

I am trying to connect my local web server with an XML voice service called Voice Shot (voiceshot.com).  They have demo voice service (IVR) running and I downloaded the demo ASP.NET program of theirs.  When my port is opened, I can run the program locally and it will receive inbound XML files from their server.  Then the demo responds with the response that corresponds to the keystrokes the pwerson made on the telephone.

Is that Port Forwarding?  I actually just want to open a port.  I have posted a picture of the options I see.

Also, attached is the configuration page at VoiceShot.com where I need to set the URL where their service can find my machine, access through the firewall, then communicate the XML to their demo running on IIS on my machine.

Port forwarding sounds right.

You need to know which port, and the IP address of your Server on the LAn behind the firewall ( Local IP )

I can use any port I want.
IP address of server is known

I still don't get how to tie it all together...
