Newbie Simple Help

ok, this is to help me play a game, im trying to figure out how to map ports internal to external using Mandrake Single Network Firewall. the Requirements are as followed.

UL Requires Ports:
UDP IN/OUT to, External Ports 7400-7500 Mapped to Internal port 9599

Specifically OUT UDP from localhost 9599 to server ports 7500-7502 and IN UDP from server 7400-7450 to localhost 9599.

Went through my nice little GUI, but i cant seem to find anything that resembles port mapping, and im not exactly firewall literate.

You can look into the rpc portmapper daemon. I don't know if Mandrake starts it by default install or not, but you can look through your sysvinit editor and see. It may be what you're looking for.
