 Subject:  port forwarding
 Date:  Wed, 16 Jun 2004 20:55:09 +1000
I am trying to forward a port :
through a RT314 router
then through a m0n0 box
into my pc running a service listening on a port.

I have a pretty good idea as the how i need to go about this, but all my 
attempts to date (well, just today really)  have failed..
Everything else (browsing, games, irc etc) works fine outbound, it's just 
the inbound connections looking for a service on a port thats failing.

It's Ventrilo (voice chat) that I'm trying to set up BTW.... which listens 
on TCP 3784 by default.

I have logged into the router and set a rule to forward 3784 to 
(my m0n0 box's WAN interface) - (i use a 172.16.x.x/16 range on the LAN 
I have tried adding a NAT entry and a firewall rule, with various 
combinations of source/target ports etc... but to no avail.

Can anyone give me a hand?
Is this the right/simplest approach?
