Default Forward port to more than 1 IP address?

How on Earth do you set a Netgear router to forward a port to more than 1 IP address on my network?

As far as I can see the "Send to LAN" setting only allows 1 IP, not a range. And if I try to add a second rule to forward the same service to a different IP address, it says the rule is already in use.

If I try to add a custom service with the same port number but different name, it won't let me as it says a service already exists using this port number!

Arggghh!

I simply want to be able to open the same port on both my laptop and desktop, as I have software on both that needs the port open. SURELY this is possible...

It's a DGN2000 by the way.

Thanks

You can’t port forward (or port trigger) to more than one LAN device, that’s common for routers, not just Netgear routers.

You're kidding? So if my girlfriend and I both want to use an app that needs a certain port open at the same time, each using our own PCs, we can't??

Also this thread:

Seems to be suggesting it's possible on other Netgear routers, just not the DGN2000. This makes sense, as I'm almost sure I could do it on my old DG834G.

you can make all the inbound for allow always which mean you are opening the firewall. if that is what you want do that then you do not have to port forward it

you will rely on firewall PC to protect

Yes, but how do I Allow Always to more than 1 device? It won't let me, says "Rule is already in use"

My PS3 is in the DMZ. But the point stands anyway, what if I had 3 or 4 computers (which I do)?

Let me try - you can NOT forward the same port to more than one computer at a time - not on this router, not on any consumer grade NAT router.

What if you had more than one computer? You'd buy a business class router.

You're saying I can't turn off the firewall completely and allow ALL incoming connections to ALL my devices?
