Port forwarding with one NIC

True or false, the use of the Port Forwarding feature only works if I have two NICs in my SME server.

If this is true, I will stop trying to make it work!!!

I don't think the issue is 2 NIC's or not, the issue is that the server needs to be in gateway/server mode (which does indeed require 2 NICs).

Port forwarding only works if you have both a LAN and WAN network connection. Usually that means you will have two NICs.
