Typos should be checked with input validation, you said it.

I called it port forwarding. Another term for the same thing. I've never
heard of "Server NAT", do you? No, it's nothing more than confusing to
me. Moreover when I see, that on the page called "Server NAT", one can
only type ip addresses in (and a more or less useful description for the
ip address). Yes, it would be nice, if I could define objects anywhere,
for using them later, but this should be global.

Ok. Don't split hairs! I'll stop this thread now. Was only a try to
think about making some things clearer.

Ciao ...
