The problem is the port 44321, due to a bug in the API's exposed by WHS the max port size is 32767 (listed as a known issue in the first post). I do checking of that value in the Add Port dialog and won't let you add 44321, but I don't do checking of the entries that WHS knows about. I'm not sure what's configuring that, but if you delete that entry then I believe all the known forwarded ports should show up and WHS Port Forward should work normally. Do you know what created that entry and how it got there?

I see, I just manually deleted 44321 from the Registry and all the others now show up in the GUI. (perfect) Makes sense now, but that's too bad about the max port size oh well. So far anything that needs a higher up port number configures it directly. (utorrent, Air Video server, etc)

Good to hear it's working, let us know how things go when you do away with your static port forwards and if things are still working well then. I'll make a note to fix the issue reading the port number from the WHS entries if I do any updates to this Add-In, for now it seems low priority.

Hello, I was wondering if you’re going to update this add-in for WHS 2011? I miss being able to add ports via the now dashboard. I know I can just log into my router, but this way was more fun and easier too. Hopefully the range bug is fixed from Microsoft as well.

No plans at this time, I'm not even sure if the API I used in this Add-In is available in WHS 2011.

Thanks for the update. I'm pretty sure it's there. WHS 2011 automatically adds the port forwards for remote access like V1 did. That's not not to say that operation is an API you can use, but hopefully :)

The following are showing up in my router UpNp section and I didn't add them.

HTTP Yes 80 80 TCP
HTTPS Yes 443 443 TCP

(along with uTorrent, but that's obviously done by the uTorrent app itself)

WHS 2011 shares a code base with WIndows 7 right?
