I can't test this yet as I don't want to change what I've already set up and which is working correctly.
But I did a test with another device - i.e. adding port 21 - and I had no problem adding port 21 even though I've already got some higher numbered ports forwarded on that device.
When I try to port forward port 21 on the correct device - which is on 192.168.0.10 - get this error message "The local ports between 21 and 21 on IP 192.168.0.10 have been added as virtual server already, please try another one"
I might try your method later when I can safely delete the ports already forwarded - it is very frustrating as a user trying to set up something which should be straightforward. I used a different internet supplier in another location and I had to set up a similar port forwarding rules. It took me ten minutes and everything worked first time. It is very frustrating that VM has these problems, especially as VM is double the price of the internet in the other location. I have been spending hours on this single problem in the past few days after installing the VM Hub 3.0.
