Hub 3.0 won't let me open specific port needed for dedicated server

I'm trying to open port 7777 for my dedicated Conan Exiles server but whenever I try opening it I get the error message:

The local ports between 7777 and 7777 on IP 192.168.0.10 have been added as virtual server already, please try another one.

The only other port I've opened is 27015 which is the other one needed to host the server.. any ideas? It's driving me nuts right now.

Found the solution here http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Networking-and-wireless/Port-Forwarding-on-Hub-3/td-p/3043701/pa...

In case anyone else runs into this issue

Found the bug. It will tell you the port range is already open when you have opened a port range higher than the one you intended.

    eg. I want forward port 80 but have previously port forwarded 8080 to the same ip address.

You have to delete the rules and then enter the port forward in ascending order. 

    eg. Ports 22,80,443,8080  in that order.

Hope it helps anyone else who is suffering the issue and hopefully the VM team can fix it properly.
