Port Forwarding on Westell 9100EM

I currently have Verizon FiOS Internet w/ a Westell UltraLine Series 3 9100EM FiOS modem.


For [P2P-sharing], I need to forward a port. Port 52883 to be exact.

But the firmware's port forwarding section is pretty complicated. Because when I used to have a Westell 6100F, all I had to do was specify the IP address of the network device you'd be port forwarding, and the port you wanted to forward for that device.


On this one, I have:

[check] Specify Public IP Address

..........[IP Address Field]

Localhost IP Address

[check]  Specify Network IP Address

..........[IP Address Field]


And then I can manually specify the ports.

TCP > [Single] or [Range] > Port

UDP > [Single] or [Range] > Port

And a few other options.


I won't provide screen shots just yet. But if anyone needs a screenshot, image of the modem, or more information, I will be glad to provide those.


Thanks in advance.
