Port forwarding to VM

Hello all,
I have been struggling with Proxmox to get outside access for about 7 hours now without luck.

If I forward the ports to pve, I get a pass. But forwarding to the VM gets me no-where...

What the hell am I missing?
I have a proxmox host, and a ubuntu server VM.
I wish to pass ports udp 7777-7780, and tcp 27015, 27020 from the host to the VM.
Router is configured to pass the ports, however no-one outside my network can see me...
Forwarding 8006 works fine.

I have tried placing the host ( and the VM ( into the dmz without luck..

Tcpdump shows I am hitting the host, but not the VM when I use canyouseeme.org.

Beyond that.... What configs do you need?
