    Ports 136 - 138 are for Microsoft NetBIOS, you DON'T want those ports open; also, the range 0-65535 means that you'd better plug straight to Internet without FW... who is asking to do this??

    Don't know Juniper syntax, but it should be something like this:

    FROM [your LAN subnet] and PORT [1024 to 65535] TO DST PORT 8080 ACCEPT/ALLOW

    Translate it as necessary.

    from the command line please post the results of the following command

    get policy

    Also are you trying to allow outbound traffic or inbound?

    Hi Tom,

    I suspect you are not enabled source NAT (PAT) on the policy or may be the order of policy is not correct.

    Refer the following articles for configuration assistance:

    Good Luck!
