Port Forwarding

This page was added since v4.6. For older versions, please view Firewall.

On the left side of web Admin Panel -> NETWORK -> Port Forwarding

In FIREWALL page, you can set up firewall rules like Port Forwarding, Open Ports on Router and DMZ.


DMZ lets you to expose one computer to the Internet, so all inbound packets will be redirected to this computer.

Toggle on Enable DMZ. Select the internal IP address of your device which is going to receive all the inbound packets.

You can select the priority of the DMZ. If the priority of the DMZ is higher than the port forwarding rules, all the port forwarding rules will be invalidated. Otherwise, only if the accessed port does not have a corresponding port forwarding rule, the request will be forwarded to the client device set by the DMZ.
