groups are used for source address translations.

box to box is a redundancy setup, One Armed is a design, so you can not compare these





-One Armed

-Routed mode

-Bridged mode

The 2 questions you are asking are the same:

The Port on the content rule is how traffic enters the box (incomming request port)

The Port on the service is how traffic will be sent to the server.

By using diffrent ports on the service and content rule you invoke port address translation wich you need for question 2
