I'm trying to add a rule to my router to allow outside access of a web app running on one of my computers on port 8080.

When creating a rule, my router (actionTec) asks for three fields: "Port Start", "Port End", and "Port Map Start".

I think I understand what start and end would be, but then the port map start throws me into confusion. What should the values of these three be?

Just enter 8080 in each field.
