I've been testing the M0n0wall appliance in an ESX 3i host and have been very pleased with it.
However I wonder if someone can help me find out how come a port/NAT forwarding rule that I'm trying
to set for port 2023 is not working.
The rule allows access to the outside TELNET clients to an internal UNIX server which is listening
for TELNET connections on port 2023
I have setup forwarding rules for RDP on 3389 and for VMWARE client management on SSL and other
private ports and it works perfectly. However when I tell it to forward 2023 it does not. And only
in that rule.
I have also tried to create another rule where the external port 23 will be forwarded to the
internal 2023, but that does not work neither
Following are the pages from my setup. Any help ? thanks in advance.
