How to Pory Forward on a Sky SR203 Router

As a new Sky user I'm at a loss as how to replicate the port forwarding arrangement I previously had with my BT Smart hub >

But all of the LAN (internal?) ports seem to be forwarded to the full range of WAN (External?) ports?!

 

1. How do I create a rule that forwards a specific internal port to a specific external one? As I had with BT.

 

2. How do I create a rule with differing internal (8888) and external ports (80)?

 

3. Checking on canyouseeme.org port 443 is reported as open anyway, even with the rule disabled?

 

4. Ports 80 and 51280 are always reported as closed.

 

This is proving quite a frustrating first experience with the Sky router, so any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

 

Router Model: SR203

Firmware: 7.02.0201R

You need to setup firewall rules as well as servixes.

Have a read of this community tip arrticle on how port forwarding works;.

Thank you Lettice.

 

I have these already setup, though seemingly not correctly.

 

I had included a screen-grab of these in my original post, which seems to have dissappeared...

Here it is again, together with the original configuration (BT Smarthub) that I'm trying to replicate.

 

Thanks

@Tele 

The Sky hub does not support port translation it has to be a 1 to 1 mapping e.g. Port 80 internally to port 80 externally rather than 8888
