    I'm having trouble finding place to edit port forwarding settings, and I'm having a feeling that the feature doesn't even exist. Obviously, blocking some ports can - and will - lead to some issues; and I'm already experiencing a bunch of them.

    Anyone?

    Hi,

    I think you've got to create a rule for :

    First panel :

    Direction : Both
    Action : Allow
    Protocol : TCP&UDP (or only one of them, depending on the forwarding you want to set up)

    -
    Second panel ("local")

    Local port : (the port you want to forward)
    Application : (specify one if the forwarding is needed only for it, else leave blank)

    -
    Third panel ("remote")

    Leave blank

    And click OK to create the rule.
    Obviously it will work only in advanced mode.

    Hope it will help,

    I assume the settings are under Zone and rule editor, but I can't access it somehow; the button is grayed out:

    That's probably because you're using the firewall in automatic mode. Switch the firewall to interactive mode before you can edit rules.

    Interactive mode is nice. It is the first firewall that I can actually understand.;)
