It means that the address that you added as the local address to forward the port data to doesn't exist.

Typically to make port forwarding work correctly it helps to define static addresses for the destination machine.

I would assume that in your case you have assigned a dhcp address and that there no longer is a device at that address.

You need to set a static IP on the machine, then you need to exclude that address from the dhcp range, then configure your port forwarding.
