I am trying to set up port forwarding on my 5g home internet router. I found the Virtual Servers settings page under NAT forwarding. I set up the following rule, however, I keep getting a "Rule Invalid" error. I would love to have some recommendations.

I believe the port 22 is not allowed on the WAN side.

Port 22 is used for remote SSH into your router by the engineering department during troubleshooting.

You can opt for any other ports on the WAN side, like 8022, if you want some consistency in numbering.
