You can forward ports using the command:

set nat entry add ...

(see help inside router, or your docs)

If you have your DSL router connected directly to a firewalled system
acting as a gateway to any other computers (with a second level of
NAT), you can simply forward everything, such as this:

set nat entry add

Where is the IP to forward traffic to.

You can forward specific ports to a different system by giving the
command *before* the above command to forward all ports.  Check
documentation (on-line documentation inside the router is very good
for this) for the syntax for forwarding specific ports.
