    Port Range Forwarding: You can forward a range of ports (like 5000-6000).
    Port Forwarding: This can be used to forward an external port to a different internal port like forwarding port 8080 to port 80 on your web server.

    I generally use the port range forwarding for any ports i need forwarded and only use the other one if I need to send packets to a different port on a server. You can use the Port Forwarding page for basic forwarding though if you choose (or run out of entries on the other page).

    Dang that is a lot of usage of the words port and forwarding.. hope it makes sense.
