With this router, you will not be able to port forward to those public ip addresses.  This router does not support that function.  What you would need is one of our rv series routers, like the rv042, rv082, or the rv016.  With these devices you can do what is called one to one nat  and reference a public address to a private address behind the firewall.  The rvs4000 router does not have that function.

You need the RV0 series routers to do 1 to 1 nat. The you can only use one static ip address with the RVS4000. If you need more than one static ip address mapped to internal severs, you will need the 1 to 1 options that are in the RV042, RV082,RV016 routers.

I'm sorry to reopen the ticket, but i have only a little question. Can you confirm rv042 router can handle one-to-one NAT for my 8 public ip addresses and i can do port forwarding with this adresses?

Thank you, have a nice day

Yes, You can forward the 8 public to private IP's thru the RV0XX series routers

You however do not need to setup port forwarding on those IP's.

The router will send that traffic directly to the IP you want it to go to.

Yeah, the one to one nat feature is supported on this router and will cover that range you have.  And you can port forward to the private ip address of the devices you are wanting to setup.
