Unable to connect to game server on network.

I have set up port forwarding for Minecraft and Ark: Survival Evolved within my XB6 gateway but for some reason, it is not forwarding these ports to the system I want them to go to.  I have verified that the IP address is valid, after switching it from a static internal IP to a DHCP address,  and that it is showing as a connected device.  I am able to do a raw connection to the port from an internal computer using a telnet client but whenever I try to use my games, it will not connect.

 

I am trying to get this set up so that my family can all play on these 2 game servers and not have to purchase an outside game server since I have the equipment to do this within my home lab.  I work within IT so I have gone through an extensive amount of troubleshooting this issue already but I have never set up these types of game servers before.  Any help would be appreciated.
