Exclamation MNF and Shorewall port forwarding

Ok I need some real help i have been refred to pages on port forwarding that dosnt really help me. I am running mandrake firewall and i know it uses shorewall. How do i go about configuring my firewall to exccept all incoming traffic on port 8080 and forward it to a local machine on my network. If i could get someone to help me please I am stuck. I kind of figured u cant do it from the web interface because i tried and its not working. I read some of the help pages and they dont help so if someone can help i would appreciate it and if u need any information please let me know.

MNF and Shorewall port forwarding

Edit /etc/shorewall/rules to include the following line before the end of the file:

DNAT net loc: tcp 8080 -

Where should be replaced with the IP address of the machine on your local network and should be replaced with your public facing IP.

If you don't know that IP address, or don't have a static IP, leave it blank.

then restart shorewall with # shorewall restart
