Playing Games through shorewall

Hi, I run a network where MDK 9.0 is my net server and I run games on XP. I am looking for the correct syntax for opening specific ports in shorewall ie 2300- 2400 UDP & TCP. I also wish that these ports be sent to only one PC. I havew tried the following but to no avail. Nothing happens.
DNAT net masq: tcp 2300:2400,47624
DNAT net masq: udp 2300:2400

Any help greatfully appreciated

Question: is masq the name for your internal network zone ?
In my installation (I just accepted the defaults), the internal network is referred to as loc.

Therefore, whenever I want to forward ports from the internet to an internal PC I have to specify loc:internal IP address

Try this:

DNAT net loc: tcp 2300:2400,47624
DNAT net loc: tcp 2300:2400

I also accepted the defaults and ended up with masq as the default. Loc is there but nothing is connected to it.
Anyway I gave up with Shorewall and now I use fwbuilder. Far far easier to use and understand.
