I would like to allow incoming and outgoing traffic

this port will be open for a machine in my office to be able to send and received data.

I do not know anything about this watchguard router,

Please help.

If you want to open communication from an external network, you need to configure a port forwarding, so when ip packets (you need to specify if the port will be udp or tcp too) incoming to port 12345, the router will send it to the IP address of the selected computer. I don't have a Watchguard X10E to guide you step by step on how to achieve this, but any other questions just post it here and i'll try to help you.
