No private port options for port forwarding

When I try to set up port forwarding, I only have an option for start and end port, but nothing to map to a private port. This is a problem since I have a couple of servers that I need ssh access to. I was able to set up a port forward for port 22 to one server, but now I cannot use to map to the other one.

 

Is there a way around this?

Hello JA121,

 

Sorry for the delayed response. With these servers that you are mapping to, are they being accessed outside your network via the internet or internal to your network?

Also sorry for the late reply (Had to put this on the back burner for a while).

 

The servers would be accessed from the internet.

Re: No private port options for port forwarding

Thank you JA121 and sorry for the delayed response,

 

For this situation you can assign static IP's to your servers then use a  similar port forwarding to each server. You may find that you have issues connecting to multiple virtual machines existing on the same physical system. For such a configuration I would suggest purchasing a private router with more dynamic port forwarding options. I hope this helps.
