RV016: forwarding bypasses firewall?

    I'm running an rv016 as a NAT/firewall, and I'm being driven insane.

    It seems like the forwarding engine happens before the firewall rules, so if I want to allow anyone to access an internal machine, I have to let everyone. My firewall rules are simple; the default "deny all", except for the outbound LAN traffic. As soon as I enable forwarding to an internal machine on a port, anyone in the world can get to it.

    Even if I explicity add a deny all rule for that port, it does no good.

    Am I mising something? Anyone else seen this?
