I provided example changed config lines in the ogiginal reply.  You can edit
the config with a text editor (either vi or notepad or whatever).

The line you need to add in the "nat.ini" section for the mapping is:

create protocol=tcp inside_addr= outside_addr=

Hope this helps... You can also edit this in the GUI under the "NAPT"
