Port Forwarding on Fortigate 60C

Hi Guys,

I am trying to setup port forwarding on a Fortigate 60C and I am not sure what the "external IP address is? This seems to be related to the PC. I know what the external address is that is on the firewall shich is under external interface. Any Ideas?

That doesn't work. I entered the static public info provided by Verizon Fios. That's also my "External interface" why should I have to enter the same info twice?

If you have range of PUBLIC IP addresses you can specify there or specify only one IP on both fileds (It means only 1 IP). When you specify range, e.g. external 10 IP and Mapped 10 IP, Fortigate will do 1 to 1 nat.

I think port 8888 and 8000 is used by Fortigate itself. Try by using different port.

You verify why packet is not reaching your destination using debug flow commands.
