Could you point me to a helpfile for the 1:1 and limiting the ports or even 
opening the ports. I did the 1:1 the server shows it is sending outgoing 
connections on that IP  but incoming connections are not working.

I feel stupid for asking this.

Yes, you can accomplish that with server + outbound or 1:1.  Though if
you have enough IP's to use one for each machine you want ports opened
to inbound, 1:1 is much simpler than server + outbound.  When it comes
to firewalls, simpler == more secure, if only because it's much easier
to screw up a complicated config, like server NAT can become.
