Gufw Firewall Port Forwarding


Long time no post. Guess I've had a good run.

I am currently using ubuntu 15.10 as an internet connection sharing machine

ICS has been set up via the 'Edit Connections' and the local network set to 'Shared to other computers'

This works well. I then setup Gufw to allow ports like ssh etc

My issue now is I am trying to forward a port 3389 to (Windows Remote Desktop)

I have changed /etc/ufw/sysctl.conf and uncommented the following


Attached is the screenshot on my gufw setup

please note that enp5s0 is my card connected to the internet and enp0s31f6 is my internal network

Any help on this is appreciated!
