Using DKMessenger VideoPhone software

I have an ADSL Home account (static IP) using a Solwise SAR130 router, and I want to run DKMessenger
(details at http://dkmessenger.com/ ).

It says I need to setup Port Forwarding, to forward ports 2074, 5000 and 81 to the internal IP Address of the computer behind the router.

I've looked at the router help, but it seems to indicate you can only forward a single port (it gives port 80 as eg). Is this true?

PS I am running XPpro, with Zonealarm as PFW.

Has anyone already done the setup who is willing to help?

TIA.

You can only forward a single port at a time. That means you can't create all the forwarding records in one go.

You create each one, one submition at a time.

Thanks for the swift reply!

Just checking - if I do, say port 2074, then submit, then commit, and then if I do the next one, it will retain the 2074 forward as well?

Also, do I need to commit-reboot each time, or can I just do
first port - submit,
2nd port - submit,
3rd port - submit, commit+reboot ?

I appreciate your help. Cheesy

The second method, with only one commit and reboot is what should be needed.
