I am attempting to setup port forwarding for SmartLink using my 6500 and a Netgear WNDRMACv2 Wireless Router.

I have the detailed instructions on how to do this with one exception which is the "Service Name".  The routers control panel wishes to know whether I want FTP or HTTP or ICUII or IP_Phone or NetMeeting or News or PPTP or QuakeII/III (unlikely) or Real-Audio or last but not least Telnet.

I have not seen any description of the type protocol required by SmartLink.  Anyone? Buehler? Buehler???

You don't need to select any of those. They are used to preconfigure the router for those services. Set up the ports per your instructions and you'll be on the air remotely in no time.
