Sonicwall port forwarding (TZ 205)

Just received a new Sonicwall TZ205 (my first) quite exciting but cannot work out how to configure a simple port forwarding!

I have just watched the following video, which is really good, but does not quite achieved what I am trying to do:

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1T-iAblitw)

So....How in Sonic Firewall I can create a Port forwarding as follow?
If possible could you provide the solution step by step

Service: RDS Fred Test
Public port: 3396
Private Port: 3389
Private IP: 192.168.0.10

Thank you

Hi Tailoreddigital,

The link posted is the one included in my first post!

All port forwarding tutorials that I  found on the net map from the same public & private, which is not what I am trying to achieve. In all my respects, if you don't know anything about SonicWall, could you please stop sending me links but trying to help finding a solution.

The scenario is:
If I mapped port 3496 (public) to 3389 (private) to a single ip address, how do I achieve this in sonicwall?

Thank you

i didn't randomly grab links, i studied the links myself to figure out whether or not i thought they'd help you.   If i didn't think it would help, i wouldn't have posted it.    I apologize for over looking the last link that you had posted.    I watch that guy go into detail about how Sonicwall has you create objects that are then used to forward specific ports.   I've always used the port numbers in the forwarding i've done. I haven't done this with a sonicwall, but it appeared that the last video was a solution.  I apologize that it wasn't.    Hopefully another expert will be able to point you in the right direction, good luck.

It doesn't seem so complicated.

Create a new Service Object
   Service Objects
      Name the Service Object:  RDS Fred Test
      Choose the Protocol Type:  TCP
      Choose your port range: 3396 to 3396

From the "Wizards" interface choose Public Server Wizard (Port Forward Wizard)
   Choose Server Type: Other
   In the Services dropdown:  Choose "RDS Fred Test"
Click Next,    
   Add a Server Name: "Fred Computer" or whatever
   Add a Private IP Address: 192.168.0.10
Click Next
Click Next
Click Apply

This port forwarding is perfect except for the fact that you want to forward from a different external port (3396) to the standard RDP port of 3389.

After the above, you need to modify the Translation Port manually as pointed out in this thread,
http://cyberblogue.com/sonicwall-port-forwarding-wan-port-different-from-the-internal-port-enhanced-os/


When i setup port forwarding for RDP on a network of more than one computer, i usually setup a different port for each system needing RDP.   I might have 3389, 3390,3391, etc. When i set this up, i change the RDP port on the individual systems to match the external port being used. In this way, you don't have to worry about translating the port.

Using this method requires the particular port being opened in the system firewall

Thanks. That is what I was after.

Like the guy explains, This one is a bit tricky.
