Firewall Rule Not being Used

I have a Netgear FVS318N device.  I am trying to setup a fire wall rule that sends http traffic to an internal web server.
Firewall SettingsWhen I attempt to access the site from the outside world, it doesn't forward the request to web server.  The router management pages comes up instead.  It sounds like I am missing a simple setting.

is your firewall's external access already configured or reserved to use http or port 80? .

The server gateway is the router's internal IP? what about accessing this server from a internal host?

Is the website/webserver configured  forced to access https?

Thanks for the feedback and trouble shooting suggestions as it got me to issue.  My workstation has two NICs for testing.  My requests for the web site external address where coming from the internal which caused the router to kick in. Once I disconnected -- everything is working. Silly mistake.
