port forwarding rules duplicate...

Hi,
i have a Wireless-N ADSL2+ Gateway and 2 pc connected to it.
I need to create the same rule for the 2 connected hosts becouse i need to open the same ports to both pc.
when i try to open them, putting the same External Port and Internal Port on the 2 ip addresses, it pop ups a nasty error message:

ENTRY 7 AND ENTRY 9 PORTS DUPLICATE

how can i open the ports on the 2 pc?

Re: port forwarding rules duplicate...

well..u cannot forward the same ports for two different ip addresses...in case , u want to do it , u need to do Port Range Trigerring instead of Forwarding..in that case , u need not enter the ip add for the device...only enter the port number...
because port trigerring opens the port for the entire network...
