I could not get this to work in CeroWRT - it didn't recognize --dport

This is what I have at the end of /etc/config/firewall:

config redirect
        option target 'ACCEPT'
        option src 'wan'
        option src_dport '1701'
        option dest_ip ''
        option dest_port '1701'
        option name 'DirecTV'
        option proto 'tcp udp'
        option dest '*'

Is this correct?  It still doesn't seem that port forwarding is
working.  Unless this isn't the *only* problem.
