Firewall

Object Description

A firewall protects your network from the outside world. Here you can enable or disable the Router’s firewall.

SPI Firewall - SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection, also known as dynamic packet filtering) helps to prevent cyber attacks by tracking more state per session. It validates that the traffic passing through the session conforms to the protocol. SPI

Firewall is enabled by factory default. If you want all the computers on the LAN exposed to the outside world, you can disable it.

VPN

VPN Passthrough must be enabled if you want to allow VPN tunnels using IPSec, PPTP, or L2TP protocols to pass through the Router’s firewall.

PPTP Passthrough - Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) allows the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) to be tunneled through an IP network. To allow PPTP tunnels to pass through the

ALG

User’s Manual of WNRT-617G

Router, keep the default, Enabled.

L2TP Passthrough - Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) is the method used to enable Point-to-Point sessions via the Internet on the Layer 2 level. To allow L2TP tunnels to pass through the

Router, keep the default, Enabled.

IPSec Passthrough - Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) is a suite of protocols for ensuring private, secure communications over

Internet Protocol (IP) networks, through the use of cryptographic security services. To allow IPSec tunnels to pass through the

Router, keep the default, Enabled.

It is recommended to enable Application Layer Gateway (ALG) because ALG allows customized Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal filters to be plugged into the gateway to support address and port translation for certain application layer "control/data" protocols such as FTP, TFTP, H323 etc.

FTP ALG - To allow FTP clients and servers to transfer data across NAT, keep the default Enable.

TFTP ALG - To allow TFTP clients and servers to transfer data across NAT, keep the default Enable.

H323 ALG - To allow Microsoft NetMeeting clients to communicate across NAT, keep the default Enable.

Appendix D: Glossary

802.11n - 802.11n builds upon previous 802.11 standards by adding MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output). MIMO uses multiple transmitter and receiver antennas to allow for increased data throughput via spatial multiplexing and increased range by exploiting the spatial diversity, perhaps through coding schemes like Alamouti coding. The Enhanced Wireless

Consortium (EWC) [3] was formed to help accelerate the IEEE 802.11n development process and promote a technology specification for interoperability of next-generation wireless local area networking (WLAN) products.

802.11b - The 802.11b standard specifies a wireless networking at 11 Mbps using direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DSSS) technology and operating in the unlicensed radio spectrum at 2.4GHz, and WEP encryption for security. 802.11b networks are also referred to as Wi-Fi networks.

802.11g - specification for wireless networking at 54 Mbps using direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DSSS) technology, using OFDM modulation and operating in the unlicensed radio spectrum at 2.4GHz, and backward compatibility with IEEE 802.11b devices, and WEP encryption for security.

DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) - The capability of assigning a fixed host and domain name to a dynamic Internet IP Address.

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) - A protocol that automatically configure the

TCP/IP parameters for the all the PC(s) that are connected to a DHCP server.

DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) - A Demilitarized Zone allows one local host to be exposed to the

Internet for a special-purpose service such as Internet gaming or videoconferencing.

DNS (Domain Name System) - An Internet Service that translates the names of websites into

IP addresses.

Domain Name - A descriptive name for an address or group of addresses on the Internet.

DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) - A technology that allows data to be sent or received over existing traditional phone lines.

ISP (Internet Service Provider) - A company that provides access to the Internet.

MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) - The size in bytes of the largest packet that can be transmitted.

NAT (Network Address Translation) - NAT technology translates IP addresses of a local area network to a different IP address for the Internet.

PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) - PPPoE is a protocol for connecting remote hosts to the Internet over an always-on connection by simulating a dial-up connection.

User’s Manual of WNRT-617G

SSID - A Service Set Identification is a thirty-two character (maximum) alphanumeric key identifying a wireless local area network. For the wireless devices in a network to communicate with each other, all devices must be configured with the same SSID. This is typically the configuration parameter for a wireless PC card. It corresponds to the ESSID in the wireless Access Point and to the wireless network name.

WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) - A data privacy mechanism based on a 64-bit or 128-bit or

152-bit shared key algorithm, as described in the IEEE 802.11 standard.

Wi-Fi - A trade name for the 802.11b wireless networking standard, given by the Wireless

Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA, see http://www.wi-fi.net), an industry standards group promoting interoperability among 802.11b devices.

WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) - A group of computers and associated devices communicate with each other wirelessly, which network serving users are limited in a local area.
