Hello, I am thinking about setting up a few servers - And so far everything have been going ok. But now to the questions. 

1. I have bough a switch. When I am then going to portfoward inside the router, do i try and find the switch IP-adress and forward it to that adress, or do i use the internal machine ip-adress?

2. Any good useful servers you recommend setting up that doesnt take too much power? (Thinking about Minecraft, Teamspeak etc.) Already going to set up teamspeak and some minor game servers. 

My server machine is very weak but internet line is very strong so keep that in mind when coming with suggestions:)

 

Thanks in advance.

By the way this is my first post so I attached a party potato.

A switch is not a router and as such is just a pass through device.  Forwarding to it would be a dead end of the forward.

No suggestions on question 2
