Unable to get port forwarding to work with SonicWall PRO 1260

Hi All-

I have a server that needs to see the outside world on Ports 81, 3266, 3854-3866.

I have gone through and used the Public Server Wizard AND done it by hand, before and after resetting the router to defaults and i can't figure it out.

Ultimate goal is for the computers on the LAN and mobile devices that roam on/off the LAN to have one server definition in this application we're using, and it will point to that private IP address no matter whether they are On or Off the LAN.

What am I doing wrong? The Public server wizard seems to do everything right, yet I CANT get this working..

The craziest part is I had it working a few days ago, and I had to remove the policies due to a conflict with another production service, which has since been moved.

Please help. I'm on site.

Also I can access the server locally as expected-  my server shouldn't be the problem.

Figured it out- router IP was set incorrectly on server.
