Model: ER605 (TL-R605)  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.1

Hello!  I have 5 Port Forwarding rules in NAT+>Virtual Servers.  Do I have to create Firewall Access Control rules for them?  Or are these port forwarding rules bypass the access rules?

 

Thanks in advance.

If you have created an ACL rule to block all LAN to internet, you need also to create another rule to allow the router to transfer your packets out. And this allow rule should have higher priority than the deny rule. Port forwarding just allows the packets from the internet to go to your server in the LAN network. It won't help forward the packets from the LAN to the internet.
