No replies yet?? Do you need to change the service to HTTPS, which would be port 443? It should be as simple as
creating a DNAT rule to change the destination to your internal server and change the service to HTTPS (port 443). I think it's referred to as Translated service (PAT)
Naturally, check the logs to see if it's being blocked and check the firewall rules on the server to make sure the incoming connections are not being blocked by it's firewall.
I had set that up already, however when i went to see if i had it the right way round i noticed the source port was set to 44 and not 1:65535 switching that fixed it.
I'm just a little confused. Wouldn't using 1:65535 as the source port essentially forward everything to your webserver? If you only want connections to a particular port of your firewall to be forwarded to your server, why DNAT every port?
