i love winroute..but still have some understanding problems..

source: dial-up destination: firewall with certain ports..and mapping these to a different IP in the network is the way to make port forwarding right!??

now..why is there the standart rule NAT and the rule Firewall traffic? Arent these the same? They have the same services entered..Or can I understand it this way..that the services entered in NAT are for the winroute clients..and the services entered under firewall traffic are for the winroute machine (host) itself??

Please help!

The service is nothing more than the port (or range of portnumbers).
NAT is used to use one public ip address to access the internet. The firewall remembers the internal address and automatically routes response traffic to the internal client. If you have more public ip addresses on the firewall you can pick one of them.
MAP is used to route incomming data of external initiated connections (data that is not response data of a request made by an internal client) to a internal (private) ip address. On the internal client there is normally a service that handles the request.
If an internal client is a webserver requests from an external client are mapped to the internal client. The response is routed back to the external client. The client only sees the outside (public) ip address.
