WCF service w/ NATed firewall

We have WCF service setup on a web server and i am trying setup our watchguard firewall to make this work from outside our network (going throught the firewall).  I am not sure what ports to allow or what the best way to configure the firewall rule is.

Does anyone have a little insight in regard to setting this up?

If it is hosted on a web server it will usually use port 80 and/or port 443. Port 80 is http, port 443 is https. If you do not want to allow unsecure (non-ssl) connections, do not setup the rule for port 80.
You need to create the following two rules:
1) Type: http rule From: any-external or your external port To:Create a SNAT that goes from your external IP to the Internal IP of your webserver
2) Type: https rule From: any-external or your external port To:Create a SNAT that goes from your external IP to the Internal IP of your webserver

If you need more details please specify: What model and software version of WatchGuard are you using? Do you control the WatchGuard via the web portal or WatchGuard System Manager?

i don't think i can use 80 or 443 as it is already in use on the server.  I am using WSM.

You will need to find out what port or ports are bound to the WCF service. This is probably available in the IIS manager under the WCF service then the bindings option.
