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?

Hello,

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.

Hope this article answers you : http://kb.fortinet.com/kb/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=FD31893

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.
Have a look on  the article: http://kb.fortinet.com/kb/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=FD30038

Good Luck!
