I think what you were seeing before is essentially the same
functionality that you see on the Linksys type consumer routers. They
normally provide a DMZ capability to allow you to forward all input to a
specific machine. I would highly recommend you not take that approach
however. Find the ports required by your game, ( a search of the
company's support site or googling for playing xyz behind firewall will
probably get that info) then forward only those ports through your
firewall to the designated PC.
