Address Mapping
Allows one or more public IP addresses to be shared by multiple
internal users. This also hides the internal network for increased
privacy and security. Enter the Public IP address that you wish to
share into the Global IP field. In the from field, enter a range of
internal IPs that will share the global IP.
35
CONFIGURING THE WIRELESS 54MBPS ADSL ROUTER
Virtual Server
If you configure the Wireless 54Mbps ADSL Router as a virtual server,
remote users accessing services such as the Internet or FTP at your
local site via public IP addresses can be automatically redirected to
local servers with private IP addresses. In other words, depending on
the requested service (TCP/UDP port number), the Wireless 54Mbps
ADSL Router redirects the external service request to the appropriate
server (located at another internal IP address).
For example, if you set Type/Public Port to TCP/80 (HTTP or Web) and
the Private IP/Port to 192.168.2.2/80, then all HTTP requests from
outside users will be transferred to 192.168.2.2 on port 80. Therefore,
by just entering the IP address provided by the ISP, Internet users can
access the service they need at the local address to which you
redirect them.

RIP
RIP (Routing Information Protocol) sends routing-update messages at
regular intervals and when the network topology changes. When a
router receives a routing update that includes changes to an entry, it
updates its routing table to reflect the new route. RIP routers
maintain only the best route to a destination. After updating its
routing table, the router immediately begins transmitting routing
updates to inform other network routers of the change.

Firewall
The Wireless 54Mbps ADSL Router’s firewall inspects packets at the
application layer, maintains TCP and UDP session information,
including time-outs and the number of active sessions, and provides
the ability to detect and prevent certain types of network attacks.
Network attacks that deny access to a network device are called
Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks. DoS attacks are aimed at devices
41
CONFIGURING THE WIRELESS 54MBPS ADSL ROUTER
and networks with a connection to the Internet. Their goal is not to
steal information, but to disable a device or network so users no
longer have access to network resources.
The Wireless 54Mbps ADSL Router firewall function protects against
the following DoS attacks: IP Spoofing, Land Attack, Ping of Death, IP

Stateful Packet Inspection
This is called a “stateful” packet inspection because it examines the
contents of the packet to determine the state of the communications;
i.e., it ensures that the stated destination computer has previously
requested the current communication. This is a way of ensuring that
all communications are initiated by the recipient computer and are
taking place only with sources that are known and trusted from
previous interactions. In addition to being more rigorous in their
inspection of packets, stateful inspection firewalls also close off ports
until connection to the specific port is requested.
When particular types of traffic are checked, only the particular type
of traffic initiated from the internal LAN will be allowed. For example,
if the user only selects FTP Service in the Stateful Packet Inspection
section, all incoming traffic will be blocked except for FTP
connections initiated from the local LAN.
Stateful Packet Inspection allows you to select different application
types that are using dynamic port numbers. If you wish to use the
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) to block packets, select Yes in the
Enable SPI and Anti-DoS firewall protection field and then select the
