Cannot get ports to forward on Watchguard firewall

Hi.  I am trying to map ports to an internal IP from any outside IP on a Watchguard firewall.  Version 11.9 Firewire XTM Web UI.  No matter what I do, these ports will not open.  Unfortunately, not as familiar with Watchguard as I should be.
Any idea why they will not go through from the attached file?

are you referring to the highlighted row (policy) agaisnt port 8740?
I have 5 ports that need to be open.  They are 8470, 23, 8476, 397 udp, 449.  Those are the ones that will not come thru

what you need is Port Forwarding on the given ports, not Polices (for inbound / outbound firewall rules).

thhrerfore you need to go to SNAT section to do that, not Firewall Policies.

see below a detailed guide.

I will try that. Thanks!

don’t forget to delete those existing policies against those ports.
