I am sure this is easy question but for the life of me I cannot seem to figure it out.  
Basically what I have is a nagios box which I would love to get to talk to the outside world so I can login from home and check status of my servers,etc
We have a firebox X750e setup as our firewall.  I cannot seem to locate the area where I would configure the firebox to forward packets destined for the nagios box to a particular folder
eg 192.168.1.100/nagios
I can forward them to specific ports but we have a few webservers already
I created a policy but not sure which one I would choose whether it would be a proxy or a filter.
Im pretty sure it would be a proxy but not sure how i would go about configuring it from there
I just want anything destined from
<external IP/nagios> to hit the 192.168.1.100/nagios url
Thanks in advance

Cannot be done with WG. You can only forward a specific port/protocol to specific port/IP.

For creating service, you have option to forward using static NAT:
When in the from field you configure: external ip->internal ip
http://watchguard.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1546/kw/static%20NAT/p/214%2C215

OR with 1-1 NAT, when in the from field you only specify the public 1-1 NAT IP.
http://watchguard.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2192/kw/static%20NAT/p/214%2C215

In the TO part of the service you can leave on to ANY or put specific IP/subnet.

Please advice if you need more details.

Thank you.

Thanks I ended up having to change the port number and mess the the httpd.conf file a little bit to get it to work.  Then I could port forward properly.  Thanks for your help tho
