Port forward ranges
Talking to Norton Core support I was told the port forwarding feature does not handle port "ranges". However, when I look at Settings \ Network \ Port Forwarding....the list reads "Port 16600 > 16998" This indicates to me it has opened ports greater than 16600 and less than 16998. Also, to make it look this way, I had to set port 16998 as the internal port and port 16600 as the external port.
None of this seems logical. Instead of what Norton Core is calling an internal port and an external port, do they really mean something different? What good does it do it you only want to allow outgoing packets to also open the incoming port?
Do I have the words outgoing port (Core's name) and allowing outgoing packets confused? Same with Incoming port and allowing incoming packets?
I am doing this for my VOiP phone system because the service provider prefers their device be placed before the router. If placed after the router, they suggest opening a certain range of ports.
Please help me understand.
