Chapter 1: Introduction
Billion BIPAC 7402G 802.11g ADSL VPN Firewall Router
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and UPnP NAT Traversal
This protocol is used to enable simple and robust connectivity among stand-alone devices and
PCs from many different vendors. It makes network simple and affordable for users. UPnP
architecture leverages TCP/IP and the Web to enable seamless proximity networking in addition to
control and data transfer among networked devices. With this feature enabled, users can now
connect to Net meeting or MSN Messenger seamlessly.
Network Address Translation (NAT)
Allows multi-users to access outside resources such as the Internet simultaneously with one IP
address/one Internet access account. Many application layer gateway (ALG) are supported such
as web browser, ICQ, FTP, Telnet, E-mail, News, Net2phone, Ping, NetMeeting, IP phone and
others.
Firewall
Supports SOHO firewall with NAT technology. Automatically detects and blocks Denial of Service
(DoS) attacks. The URL blocking, packet filtering and SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) are also
supported. The hacker’s attack will be recorded associated with timestamp in the security logging
area. More firewall functions will always be implemented through updated firmware releases.
Domain Name System (DNS) relay
Provides an easy way to map the domain name (a friendly name for users such as
www.yahoo.com) and IP address. When local machine sets its DNS server with this router’s IP
address, every DNS conversion request packet from the PC to this router will be forwarded to the
real DNS in the outside network.
Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS)
The Dynamic DNS service allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a static hostname. This
dynamic IP address is the WAN IP address. For example, to use the service, you must first apply
for an account from a DDNS service like http://www.dyndns.org/. More than 5 DDNS servers are
supported.
PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE)
Provides embedded PPPoE client function to establish a connection. Users can get greater
access speed without changing the operation concept, sharing the same ISP account and paying
for one access account. No PPPoE client software is required for local computer. The Automatic
Reconnect and Disconnect Timeout (Idle Timer) functions are provided, too.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
Allows user to make a tunnel with a remote site directly to secure the data transmission among the
connection. User can use embedded PPTP and L2TP client/server, IKE and IPSec which are
supported by this router to make a VPN connection or users can run the PPTP client in PC and the
router already provides IPSec and PPTP pass through function to establish a VPN connection if
the user likes to run the PPTP client in his local computer.
Virtual Server (“port forwarding”)
Users can specify some services to be visible from outside users. The router can detect incoming
service requests and forward either a single port or a range of ports to the specific local computer
to handle it. For example, a user can assign a PC in the LAN acting as a WEB server inside and
expose it to the outside network. Outside users can browse inside web servers directly while it is
protected by NAT. A DMZ host setting is also provided to a local computer exposed to the outside
network, Internet.
Rich Packet Filtering
Not only filters the packet based on IP address, but also based on Port numbers. It will filter
packets from and to the Internet, and also provides a higher level of security control.

automatically. In the LAN site, the DHCP server can allocate a range of client IP addresses and
distribute them including IP address, subnet mask as well as DNS IP address to local computers. It
provides an easy way to manage the local IP network.
Static and RIP1/2 Routing
Supports an easy static routing table or RIP1/2 routing protocol to support routing capability.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
It is an easy way to remotely manage the router via SNMP.
Web based GUI
Supports web based GUI for configuration and management. It is user-friendly and comes with online help. It also supports remote management capability for remote users to configure and
manage this product.

Cabling
The most common problem associated with Ethernet is bad cabling or ADSL line(s). Make sure that all
connected devices are turned on. On the front of the product is a bank of LEDs. Verify that the LAN Link
and ADSL line LEDs are lit. If they are not, verify that you are using the proper cables.
Ensure that all other devices connected to the same telephone line as your Billion router (e.g.
telephones, fax machines, analogue modems) have a line filter connected between them and the wall
socket (unless you are using a Central Splitter or Central Filter installed by a qualified and licensed
electrician), and ensure that all line filters are correctly installed and the right way around.
Missing line filters or line filters installed the wrong way around can cause problems with your ADSL
connection, including causing frequent disconnections.

Chapter 2: Installing the Router
Billion BIPAC 7402G 802.11g ADSL VPN Firewall Router
Chapter 3: Basic Installation
BIPAC 7402G can be configured with your web browser. The web browser is included as a standard
application in the following operating systems: Linux, Mac OS, Windows 98/NT/2000/XP/Me, etc. The
product provides a very easy and user-friendly interface for configuration.
PCs must have an Ethernet interface installed properly and be connected to BIPAC 7402G either
directly or through an external repeater hub, and have TCP/IP installed and configured to obtain an IP
address through a DHCP server or a fixed IP address that must be in the same subnet as BIPAC 7402G.
The default IP address of the router is 192.168.1.254 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 (i.e. any
attached PC must be in the same subnet, and have an IP address in the range of 192.168.1.1 to
192.168.1.253). The best and easiest way is to configure the PC to get an IP address automatically from
BIPAC 7402G using DHCP. If you encounter any problems accessing the router’s web interface it may
also be advisable to uninstall any kind of software firewall on your PCs, as they can cause problems
accessing the 192.168.1.254 IP address of the router. Users should make their own decisions on how to
best protect their network.
Please follow the steps below for your PC’s network environment installation. Before taking the first step,
please check your PC’s network components. The TCP/IP protocol stack and Ethernet network adapter
must be installed. If not, please refer to your Windows-related or other operating system manuals.
Any TCP/IP capable workstation can be used to communicate with or
through the BIPAC 7402G. To configure other types of workstations,
please consult the manufacturer’s documentation.
Connecting your router
1. Connect the router to a LAN (Local Area Network) and the ADSL/telephone network.
2. Power on the device.
3. Make sure the PWR and SYS LEDs are lit steadily and that the relevant LAN LED is lit.

WEP
WEP Encryption: To prevent unauthorized wireless stations from accessing data transmitted over
the network, the router offers highly secure data encryption, known as WEP. If you require high
security for transmissions, there are two alternatives to select from: WEP 64 and WEP 128. WEP
128 will offer increased security over WEP 64.
Passphrase: This is used to generate WEP keys automatically based upon the input string and a
pre-defined algorithm in WEP64 or WEP128. You can input the same string in both the AP and
Client card settings to generate the same WEP keys. Please note that you do not have to enter
Key (0-3) as below when the Passphrase is enabled.
Default Used WEP Key: Select the encryption key ID; please refer to Key (0-3) below.
Key (0-3): Enter the key to encrypt wireless data. To allow encrypted data transmission, the WEP
Encryption Key values on all wireless stations must be the same as the router. There are four keys
for your selection. The input format is in HEX style, 5 and 13 HEX codes are required for WEP64
and WEP128 respectively, the separator is “-“. For example, using WEP64, 11-22-33-44-55 is a
valid key, whilst 1122334455 is invalid.

DHCP Server
You can disable or enable the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server or enable the
router’s DHCP relay functions. The DHCP protocol allows your router to dynamically assign IP
addresses to PCs on your network if they are configured to obtain IP addresses automatically.
To disable the router’s DHCP Server, check Disabled and click Next, then click Apply. When the
DHCP Server is disabled you will need to manually assign a fixed IP address to each PCs on your
network, and set the default gateway for each PCs to the IP address of the router (by default this is
192.168.1.254).
To configure the router’s DHCP Server, check DHCP Server and click Next. You can then
configure parameters of the DHCP Server including the IP pool (starting IP address and ending IP
address to be allocated to PCs on your network), lease time for each assigned IP address (the
period of time the IP address assigned will be valid), DNS IP address and the gateway IP address.
These details are sent to the DHCP client (i.e. your PC) when it requests an IP address from the
DHCP server. Click Apply to enable this function. If you check “Use Router as a DNS Server”,
the ADSL Router will perform the domain name lookup, find the IP address from the outside
network automatically and forward it back to the requesting PC in the LAN (your Local Area
Network).
If you check DHCP Relay Agent and click Next, then you will have to enter the IP address of the
DHCP server which will assign an IP address back to the DHCP client in the LAN. Use this
function only if advised to do so by your network administrator or ISP.

DNS
A Domain Name System (DNS) contains a mapping table for domain name and IP addresses. On
the Internet, every host has a unique and user-friendly name (domain name) such as
www.helloworld.com and an IP address. An IP address is a 32-bit number in the form of
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, for example 192.168.1.254. You can think of an IP address as a telephone
number for devices on the Internet, and the DNS will allow you to find the telephone number for
any particular domain name. As an IP Address is hard to remember, the DNS converts the friendly
name into its equivalent IP Address.
You can obtain a Domain Name System (DNS) IP address automatically if your ISP has provided it
when you logon, check the Enable box. Usually when you choose PPPoE or PPPoA as your WAN
- ISP protocol, the ISP will provide the DNS IP address automatically. You may leave the
configuration field blank.
Alternatively, your ISP may provide you with an IP address of their DNS. If this is the case, you
must enter the DNS IP address manually.
If you choose one of the other three protocols ─ RFC1483 Routed/Bridged and IPoA check with
your ISP, it may provide you with an IP address for their DNS server. You must enter the DNS IP
address if you set the DNS of your PC to the LAN IP address of this router.

System
There are six items within the System section: Time Zone, Remote Access, Firmware Upgrade,
Backup/Restore, Restart and User Management.
Time Zone
The router does not have a real time clock on board; instead, it uses the Simple Network Time
Protocol (SNTP) to get the current time from an SNTP server outside your network. Choose your
local time zone, click Enable and click the Apply button. After a successful connection to the
Internet, the router will retrieve the correct local time from the SNTP server you have specified. If
you prefer to specify an SNTP server other than those in the list, simply enter its IP address as
shown above. Your ISP may provide an SNTP server for you to use.
Daylight Saving is also known as Summer Time Period. Many places in the world adapt it during
summer time to move one hour of daylight from morning to the evening in local standard time.
Check Automatic box to auto set your local time.
Resync Period (in minutes) is the periodic interval the router will wait before it re-synchronizes the
router’s time with that of the specified SNTP server. In order to avoid unnecessarily increasing the
load on your specified SNTP server you should keep the poll interval as high as possible – at the
absolute minimum every few hours or even days.

Remote Access
To temporarily permit remote administration of the router (i.e. from outside your LAN), select a time
period the router will permit remote access for and click Enable. You may change other
configuration options for the web administration interface using Device Management options in
the Advanced section of the GUI.
If you wish to permanently enable remote access, choose a time period of 0 minutes. This setting

Firmware Upgrade
Your router’s “firmware” is the software that allows it to operate and provides all its functionality.
Think of your router as a dedicated computer, and the firmware as the software it runs. Over time
this software may be improved and modified, and your router allows you to upgrade the software it
runs to take advantage of these changes.
Clicking on Browse will allow you to select the new firmware image file you have downloaded to
your PC. Once the correct file is selected, click Upgrade to update the firmware in your router.
DO NOT power down the router or interrupt the firmware upgrading while it is
still in process. Improper operation could damage the router.

Backup / Restore
These functions allow you to save and backup your router’s current settings to a file on your PC, or
to restore a previously saved backup. This is useful if you wish to experiment with different settings,
knowing that you have a backup handy in the case of any mistakes. It is advisable to backup your
router’s settings before making any significant changes to your router’s configuration.
Press Backup to select where on your local PC to save the settings file. You may also change the
name of the file when saving if you wish to keep multiple backups.
Press Browse to select a file from your PC to restore. You should only restore settings files that
have been generated by the Backup function, and that were created when using the current
version of the router’s firmware. Settings files saved to your PC should not be manually
edited in any way.
After selecting the settings file you wish to use, pressing Restore will load those settings into the
router.

User Management
In order to prevent unauthorized access to your router’s configuration interface, it requires all users
to login with a password. You can set up multiple user accounts, each with their own password.
You are able to Edit existing users and Create new users who are able to access the device’s
configuration interface. Once you have clicked on Edit, you are shown the following options:
You can change the user’s password, whether their account is active and Valid, as well as add a
comment to each user account. These options are the same when creating a user account, with
the exception that once created you cannot change the username. You cannot delete the default
admin account, however you can delete any other created accounts by clicking Delete when
editing the user.
You are strongly advised to change the password on the default “admin” account when you
receive your router, and any time you reset your configuration to Factory Defaults.

Firewall and Access Control
Your router includes a full SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall for controlling Internet access from
your LAN, as well as helping to prevent attacks from hackers. In addition to this, when using NAT
(Network Address Translation. Please see the WAN configuration section for more details on NAT) the
router acts as a “natural” Internet firewall, as all PCs on your LAN will use private IP addresses that
cannot be directly accessed from the Internet.
Firewall: Prevents access from outside your network. The router provides three levels of security
support:
NAT natural firewall: This masks LAN users’ IP addresses which are invisible to outside users on the
Internet, making it much more difficult for a hacker to target a machine on your network. This natural
firewall is on when NAT function is enabled.
When using Virtual Servers your PCs will be exposed to the degree
specified in your Virtual Server settings provided the ports specified are
opened in your firewall packet filter settings.
Firewall Security and Policy (General Settings): Inbound direction of Packet Filter rules to prevent
unauthorized computers or applications accessing your local network from the Internet.
Intrusion Detection: Enable Intrusion Detection to detect, prevent and log malicious attacks.
Access Control: Prevents access from PCs on your local network:
Firewall Security and Policy (General Settings): Outbound direction of Packet Filter rules to prevent
unauthorized computers or applications accessing the Internet.
URL Filter: To block PCs on your local network from unwanted websites.

General Settings
You can choose not to enable Firewall, to add all filter rules by yourself, or enable the Firewall
using preset filter rules and modify the port filter rules as required. The Packet Filter is used to filter
packets based-on Applications (Port) or IP addresses.
There are four options when you enable the Firewall, they are:
All blocked/User-defined: no pre-defined port or address filter rules by default, meaning that
all inbound (Internet to LAN) and outbound (LAN to Internet) packets will be blocked. Users
have to add their own filter rules for further access to the Internet.
High/Medium/Low security level: the predefined port filter rules for High, Medium and Low
security are displayed in Port Filters of Packet Filter.
Select either High, Medium or Low security level to enable the Firewall. The only difference
between these three security levels is the preset port filter rules in the Packet Filter. Firewall
functionality is the same for all levels; it is only the list of preset port filters that changes between
each setting. For more detailed on level of preset port filter information, refer to Table 1:
Predefined Port Filter.
If you choose of the preset security levels and then add custom filters, you may temporarily disable
the firewall and recover your custom filter settings by re-selecting the same security level.
The “Block WAN Request” is a stand-alone function and not relate to whether security enable or
disable. Mostly it is for preventing any scan tools from WAN site by hacker.
Any remote user who is attempting to perform this action may result in blocking
all the accesses to configure and manage of the device from the Internet.

Intrusion Detection
The router’s Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is used to detect hacker attacks and intrusion
attempts from the Internet. If the IDS function of the firewall is enabled, inbound packets are
filtered and blocked depending on whether they are detected as possible hacker attacks, intrusion
attempts or other connections that the router determines to be suspicious.
Blacklist: If the router detects a possible attack, the source IP or destination IP address will be
added to the Blacklist. Any further attempts using this IP address will be blocked for the time
period specified as the Block Duration. The default setting for this function is false (disabled).
Some attack types are denied immediately without using the Blacklist function, such as Land
attack and Echo/CharGen scan.
Intrusion Detection: If enabled, IDS will block Smurf attack attempts. Default is false.
Block Duration:
Victim Protection Block Duration: This is the duration for blocking Smurf attacks.
Default value is 600 seconds.
Scan Attack Block Duration: This is the duration for blocking hosts that attempt a
possible Scan attack. Scan attack types include X’mas scan, IMAP SYN/FIN scan and
similar attempts. Default value is 86400 seconds.
DoS Attack Block Duration: This is the duration for blocking hosts that attempt a
possible Denial of Service (DoS) attack. Possible DoS attacks this attempts to block
include Ascend Kill and WinNuke. Default value is 1800 seconds.
Max TCP Open Handshaking Count: This is a threshold value to decide whether a SYN Flood
attempt is occurring or not. Default value is 100 TCP SYN per seconds.
Max PING Count: This is a threshold value to decide whether an ICMP Echo Storm is occurring or
not. Default value is 15 ICMP Echo Requests (PING) per second.

URL Filtering
URL (Uniform Resource Locator – e.g. an address in the form of http://www.abcde.com or
http://www.example.com) filter rules allow you to prevent users on your network from accessing
particular websites by their URL. There are no pre-defined URL filter rules; you can add filter rules
to meet your requirements.
Enable/Disable: To enable or disable URL Filter feature.
Block Mode: A list of the modes that you can choose to check the URL filter rules. The default is
set to Disabled.
Disabled: No action will be performed by the Block Mode.
Always On: Action is enabled. URL filter rules will be monitoring and checking at all hours
of the day.
TimeSlot1 ~ TimeSlot16: It is self-defined time period. You may specify the time period to
check the URL filter rules, i.e. during working hours. For setup and detail, refer to Time
Schedule section.
Keywords Filtering: Allows blocking by specific keywords within a particular URL rather than
having to specify a complete URL (e.g. to block any image called “advertisement.gif”). When
enabled, your specified keywords list will be checked to see if any keywords are present in URLs
accessed to determine if the connection attempt should be blocked. Please note that the URL filter
blocks web browser (HTTP) connection attempts using port 80 only.
72
Chapter 4: Configuration
Billion BIPAC 7402G 802.11g ADSL VPN Firewall Router
For example, if the URL is http://www.abc.com/abcde.html, it will be dropped as the keyword
“abcde” occurs in the URL.
Domains Filtering: This function checks the domain name only, not the IP address, in URLs
accessed against your list of domains to block or allow. If it is matched, the URL request will
be sent (Trusted) or dropped (Forbidden). For this function to be activated, both check-boxes
must be checked. The checking procedure is:
1.
Check the domain in the URL to determine if it is in the trusted list. If yes, the
connection attempt is sent to the remote web server.
2.
If not, check if it is listed in the forbidden list, and if present then the connection attempt
is dropped.
3.
If the packet does not match either of the above two items, it is sent to the remote web
server.
4.
Please be note that the domain only should be specified, not the full URL. For example
to block traffic to www.sex.com, enter “sex” or “sex.com” instead of “www.sex.com”. In
the example below, the URL request for www.abc.com will be sent to the remote web
server because it is listed in the trusted list, whilst the URL request for www.sex or
www.sex.com will be dropped, because sex.com is in the forbidden list.

are a Dial-In user (server), enter your own username.
Password: If you are a Dial-Out user (client), enter the password provided by your Host. If you
are a Dial-In user (server), enter your own password.
PPP Authentication Type: Default is Auto if you want the router to determine the authentication
type to use, or else manually specify CHAP (Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol) or
PAP (Password Authentication Protocol) if you know which type the server is using (when acting
as a client), or else the authentication type you want clients connecting to you to use (when acting
as a server). When using PAP, the password is sent unencrypted, whilst CHAP encrypts the
password before sending, and also allows for challenges at different periods to ensure that an
intruder has not replaced the client.
Data Encryption: Data sent over the VPN connection can be encrypted by an MPPE algorithm.
Default is Auto, so that this setting is negotiated when establishing a connection, or else you can
manually Enable or Disable encryption.
Key Length: The data can be encrypted by MPPE algorithm with 40 bits or 128 bits. Default is

Local:
Network: Set the IP address, subnet or address range of the local network.
Single Address: The IP address of the local host.
Subnet: The subnet of the local network. For example, IP: 192.168.1.0 with netmask
255.255.255.0 specifies one class C subnet starting from 192.168.1.1 (i.e. 192.168.1.1
through to 192.168.1.254).
IP Range: The IP address range of the local network. For example, IP: 192.168.1.1, end
IP: 192.168.1.10
Remote:
Secure Gateway Address (or Domain Name): The IP address or hostname of the remote
VPN device that is connected and establishes a VPN tunnel.
Network: Set the IP address, subnet or address range of the remote network.
Proposal: Select the IPSec security method. There are two methods of checking the
authentication information, AH (authentication header) and ESP (Encapsulating Security Payload).
Use ESP for greater security so that data will be encrypted and authenticated. Using AH data will
be authenticated but not encrypted.
Authentication: Authentication establishes the integrity of the datagram and ensures it is not
tampered with in transmit. There are three options, Message Digest 5 (MD5), Secure Hash
Algorithm (SHA1) or NONE. SHA1 is more resistant to brute-force attacks than MD5, however
it is slower.

MD5: A one-way hashing algorithm that produces a 128−bit hash.
SHA1: A one-way hashing algorithm that produces a 160−bit hash.
Encryption: Select the encryption method from the pull-down menu. There are several
options, DES, 3DES, AES (128, 192 and 256) and NULL. NULL means it is a tunnel only with
no encryption. 3DES and AES are more powerful but increase latency.
DES: Stands for Data Encryption Standard, it uses 56 bits as an encryption method.
3DES: Stands for Triple Data Encryption Standard, it uses 168 (56*3) bits as an
encryption method.
AES: Stands for Advanced Encryption Standards, you can use 128, 192 or 256 bits as
encryption method.
Perfect Forward Secrecy: Choose whether to enable PFS using Diffie-Hellman public-key
cryptography to change encryption keys during the second phase of VPN negotiation. This
function will provide better security, but extends the VPN negotiation time. Diffie-Hellman is a
public-key cryptography protocol that allows two parties to establish a shared secret over an
unsecured communication channel (i.e. over the Internet). There are three modes, MODP 768-bit,
MODP 1024-bit and MODP 1536-bit. MODP stands for Modular Exponentiation Groups.
Pre-shared Key: This is for the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) protocol, a string from 4 to 128
characters. Both sides should use the same key. IKE is used to establish a shared security policy
and authenticated keys for services (such as IPSec) that require a key. Before any IPSec traffic
can be passed, each router must be able to verify the identity of its peer. This can be done by
manually entering the pre-shared key into both sides (router or hosts).

Content: Input ID’s information, like domain name www.ipsectest.com.
Remote ID:
Type: Specify Remote ID type.
Identifier: Input remote ID’s information, like domain name www.ipsectest.com.
SA Lifetime: Specify the number of minutes that a Security Association (SA) will stay active
before new encryption and authentication key will be exchanged. There are two kinds of SAs, IKE
and IPSec. IKE negotiates and establishes SA on behalf of IPSec, an IKE SA is used by IKE.
Phase 1 (IKE): To issue an initial connection request for a new VPN tunnel. The range can be
from 5 to 15,000 minutes, and the default is 240 minutes.
Phase 2 (IPSec): To negotiate and establish secure authentication. The range can be from 5 to
15,000 minutes, and the default is 60 minutes.
A short SA time increases security by forcing the two parties to update the keys. However, every
time the VPN tunnel re-negotiates, access through the tunnel will be temporarily disconnected.
PING for Keepalive: It is used to detect IPSec tunnel connection failure. Connection failure is
defined as abort or in NO response state. In such event Ping to Keepalive takes proper action to
ensure the connection quality of IPSec.
PING to the IP: It is able to IP Ping the remote PC with the specified IP address and alert when
the connection fails. Once alter message is received, Router will drop this tunnel connection. Reestablish of this connection is required. Default setting is 0.0.0.0 which disables the function.
Internal: This sets the time interval between Pings to the IP function to monitor the connection
status. Default interval setting is 10 seconds. Time interval can be set from 0 to 3600 second, 0
second disables the function.

Virtual Server (“Port Forwarding”)
In TCP/IP and UDP networks a port is a 16-bit number used to identify which application program
(usually a server) incoming connections should be delivered to. Some ports have numbers that are preassigned to them by the IANA (the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority), and these are referred to as
“well-known ports”. Servers follow the well-known port assignments so clients can locate them.
If you wish to run a server on your network that can be accessed from the WAN (i.e. from other
machines on the Internet that are outside your local network), or any application that can accept
incoming connections (e.g. Peer-to-peer/P2P software such as instant messaging applications and P2P
file-sharing applications) and are using NAT (Network Address Translation), then you will usually need to
configure your router to forward these incoming connection attempts using specific ports to the PC on
your network running the application. You will also need to use port forwarding if you want to host an
online game server.
The reason for this is that when using NAT, your publicly accessible IP address will be used by and point
to your router, which then needs to deliver all traffic to the private IP addresses used by your PCs.
Please see the WAN configuration section of this manual for more information on NAT.
The device can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users accessing services such as Web
or FTP services via the public (WAN) IP address can be automatically redirected to local servers in the
LAN network. Depending on the requested service (TCP/UDP port number), the device redirects the
external service request to the appropriate server within the LAN network
120
Chapter 4: Configuration
Billion BIPAC 7402G 802.11g ADSL VPN Firewall Router
Add Virtual Server
Because NAT can act as a “natural” Internet firewall, your router protects your network from being
accessed by outside users when using NAT, as all incoming connection attempts will point to your
router unless you specifically create Virtual Server entries to forward those ports to a PC on your
network.
When your router needs to allow outside users to access internal servers, e.g. a web server, FTP
server, Email server or game server, the router can act as a “virtual server”. You can set up a local
server with a specific port number for the service to use, e.g. web/HTTP (port 80), FTP (port 21),
Telnet (port 23), SMTP (port 25), or POP3 (port 110), When an incoming access request to the
router for a specified port is received, it will be forwarded to the corresponding internal server.
Time Schedule: A self-defined time period to enable your virtual server. You may specify a time

Example:
If you like to remote accessing your Router through the Web/HTTP at all time, you would need to
enable port number 80 (Web/HTTP) and map to Router’s IP Address. Then all incoming HTTP
requests from you (Remote side) will be forwarded to the Router with IP address of 192.168.1.254.

Edit: Click it to edit this virtual server application.
Delete: Click it to delete this virtual server application.
Using port forwarding does have security implications, as outside users will be able to
connect to PCs on your network. For this reason you are advised to use specific
Virtual Server entries just for the ports your application requires, instead of using
DMZ. As doing so will result in all connections from the WAN attempt to access to
your public IP of the DMZ PC specified.
If you have disabled the NAT option in the WAN-ISP section, the Virtual Server
function will hence be invalid.
Attention
If the DHCP server option is enabled, you have to be very careful in assigning the IP
addresses of the virtual servers in order to avoid conflicts. The easiest way of
configuring Virtual Servers is to manually assign static IP address to each virtual
server PC, with an address that does not fall into the range of IP addresses that are
to be issued by the DHCP server. You can configure the virtual server IP address
manually, but it must still be in the same subnet as the router.

The Dynamic DNS function allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a static hostname,
allowing users whose ISP does not assign them a static IP address to use a domain name. This is
especially useful for hosting servers via your ADSL connection, so that anyone wishing to connect
to you may use your domain name, rather than having to use your dynamic IP address, which
changes from time to time. This dynamic IP address is the WAN IP address of the router, which is
assigned to you by your ISP.

Check Emails
This function allows you to have the router check your POP3 mailbox for new Email messages.
The Mail LED on your router will light when it detects new messages waiting for download. You
may also view the status of this function using the Status – Email Checking section of the web
interface, which also provides details on the number of new messages waiting. See the Status
section of this manual for more information.
Disable: Check to disable the router’s Email checking function.
Enable: Check to enable the routers Emailing checking function. The following fields will be
activated and required:
Account Name: Enter the name (login) of the POP3 account you wish to check.. Normally, it is the
text in your email address before the "@" symbol. If you have trouble with it, please contact your
ISP.
Password: Enter the account’s password.
POP3 Mail Server: Enter your (POP) mail server name. You Internet Service Provider (ISP) or
network administrator will be able to supply you with this.
Interval: Enter the value in minutes between periodic mail checks.

Device Management
The Device Management advanced configuration settings allow you to control your router’s
security options and device monitoring features.
Embedded Web Server
HTTP Port: This is the port number the router’s embedded web server (for web-based
configuration) will use. The default value is the standard HTTP port, 80. Users may specify an
alternative if, for example, they are running a web server on a PC within their LAN.
Management IP Address: You may specify an IP address allowed to logon and access the
router’s web server. Setting the IP address to 0.0.0.0 will disable IP address restrictions,
allowing users to login from any IP address.
Expire to auto-logout: Specify a time frame for the system to auto-logout the user’s
configuration session.
For Example: User A changes HTTP port number to 100, specifies their own IP address of
192.168.1.55, and sets the logout time to be 100 seconds. The router will only allow User A
access from the IP address 192.168.1.55 to logon to the Web GUI by typing:
http://192.168.1.254:100 in their web browser. After 100 seconds, the device will automatically
logout User A.

Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
UPnP offers peer-to-peer network connectivity for PCs and other network devices, along with
control and data transfer between devices. UPnP offers many advantages for users running
NAT routers through UPnP NAT Traversal, and on supported systems makes tasks such as port
forwarding much easier by letting the application control the required settings, removing the
need for the user to control advanced configuration of their device.
Both the user’s Operating System and the relevant application must support UPnP in addition to
the router. Windows XP and Windows Me natively support UPnP (when the component is
installed), and Windows 98 users may install the Internet Connection Sharing client from
Windows XP in order to support UPnP. Windows 2000 does not support UPnP.
Disable: Check to disable the router’s UPnP functionality.
Enable: Check to enable the router’s UPnP functionality.
UPnP Port: Its default setting is 2800. It is highly recommended for users to use this port
value. If this value conflicts with other ports already being used you may wish to change the
port.
SNMP Access Control (Software on a PC within the LAN is required in order to utilize this function) –
Simple Network Management Protocol.
SNMP V1 and V2:
Read Community: Specify a name to be identified as the Read Community, and an IP address.
This community string will be checked against the string entered in the configuration file. Once
the string name is matched, user obtains this IP address will be able to view the data.
Write Community: Specify a name to be identified as the Write Community, and an IP address.
This community string will be checked against the string entered in the configuration file. Once
the string name is matched, users from this IP address will be able to view and modify the data.
Trap Community: Specify a name to be identified as the Trap Community, and an IP address.
This community string will be checked against the string entered in the configuration file. Once
the string name is matched, users from this IP address will be sent SNMP Traps.
SNMP V3:
Specify a name and password for authentication. And define the access right from identified IP
address. Once the authentication has succeeded, users from this IP address will be able to view
and modify the data.
SNMP Version: SNMPv2c and SNMPv3
SNMPv2c is the combination of the enhanced protocol features of SNMPv2 without the SNMPv2
security. The "c" comes from the fact that SNMPv2c uses the SNMPv1 community string paradigm
for "security", but is widely accepted as the SNMPv2 standard.
SNMPv3 is a strong authentication mechanism, authorization with fine granularity for remote
monitoring.
Traps supported: Cold Start, Authentication Failure.

Logout
To exit the router’s web interface, choose Logout. Please ensure that you have saved the configuration
settings before you logout.
Be aware that the router is restricted to only one PC accessing the configuration web pages at a time.
Once a PC has logged into the web interface, other PCs cannot get access until the current PC has
logged out of the web interface. If the previous PC forgets to logout, the second PC can access the
page after a user-defined period, by default 3 minutes. You can modify this value using the Advanced –
Device Management section of the web interface. Please see the Advanced section of this manual for
more information.
