I am using a fritz!box7340

I would like to set up port forwarding of port 5060 to an internal IP but when I enter the port forward rule there is a conflict with an internal rule.

I assume this rule is part of the builtin telephony on this router but I see no way to disable it.

If i set up the rule as exposed host will this override the builtin rule?

You can't port forward port 5060 with a Fritz!box.

I also pose a question for you - why you want to port forward port 5060? The fact you're wanting to do this suggests to me you don't understand the major security issues associated with doing this. Port forwarding isn't necessary for 99% of VoIP setups, and should only be used if you fully understand the risks.
