will block LAN computers to connect to pre-defined Websites.

52

The major difference between “Domain filter” and “URL Blocking” is Domain filter require user to input suffix (like .com or .org, etc), while URL Blocking require user to input a keyword only.

In other words, Domain filter can block specific website, while URL Blocking can block hundreds of websites by simply a

keyword

.

URL Blocking Enable

Checked if you want to enable URL Blocking.

URL

If any part of the Website's URL matches the pre-defined word, the connection will be blocked.

For example, you can use pre-defined word "sex" to block all websites if their URLs contain pre-defined word "sex".

Enable

Checked to enable each rule.

53

In this example:

1. URL include “msn” will be blocked, and the action will be record in log-file.

2. URL include “sina” will be blocked, but the action will be record in log-file

54

2.4.3.4 MAC control

Administrator MAC Control

Regardless the MAC access configuration of administrator, specific MAC can access the device.

This device can record 3 sets. When the host(should be admin) logins Web management, the device will record MAC address of this host. Before this host configures Internet Access

Control , Suggest end-user to enable this feature, first.

55

MAC Address Control allows you to assign different access right for different users and to assign a specific IP address to a certain MAC address.

MAC Address Control

Check “Enable” to enable the “MAC Address Control”. All of the settings in this page will take effect only when “Enable” is checked.

Connection control

Check "Connection control" to enable the controlling of which wired and wireless clients can connect to this device. If a client is denied to connect to this device, it means the client can't access to the

Internet either. Choose "allow" or "deny" to allow or deny the clients, whose MAC addresses are not in the "Control table" (please see below), to connect to this device.

Association control

Check "Association control" to enable the controlling of which wireless client can associate to the wireless LAN. If a client is denied to associate to the wireless LAN, it means the client can't send or receive any data via this device. Choose "allow" or "deny" to allow or deny the clients, whose MAC addresses are not in the "Control table", to associate to the wireless LAN.

56

Control table

MAC Address

MAC address indicates a specific client.

IP Address

Expected IP address of the corresponding client. Keep it empty if you don't care its IP address.

C

"Control table" is the table at the bottom of the "MAC Address

Control" page. Each row of this table indicates the MAC address and the expected IP address mapping of a client. There are four columns in this table:

A

When "

Connection control

" is checked, check "

C

" will allow the corresponding client to connect to this device.

When "

Association control

" is checked, check "

A

" will allow the corresponding client to associate to the wireless LAN.

In this page, we provide the following Combobox and button to help you to input the MAC address.

You can select a specific client in the “DHCP clients” Combobox, and then click on the “Copy to” button to copy the MAC address of the client you select to the ID selected in the “ID”

Combobox.

Previous page and Next Page

To make this setup page simple and clear, we have divided the “Control table” into several pages. You can use these buttons to navigate to different pages.

Example:

57

In this scenario, there are three clients listed in the Control Table. Clients 1 and 2 are wireless, and client 3 is wired.

1.The "MAC Address Control" function is enabled.

2."Connection control" is enabled, and all of the wired and wireless clients not listed in the

"Control table" are "allowed" to connect to this device.

3."Association control" is enabled, and all of the wireless clients not listed in the "Control table" are "denied" to associate to the wireless LAN.

4.Clients 1 and 3 have fixed IP addresses either from the DHCP server of this device or manually assigned:

ID 1 - "00-12-34-56-78-90" --> 192.168.12.100

ID 3 - "00-98-76-54-32-10" --> 192.168.12.101

Client 2 will obtain its IP address from the IP Address pool specified in the "DHCP Server" page or can use a manually assigned static IP address.

If, for example, client 3 tries to use an IP address different from the address listed in the

Control table (192.168.12.101), it will be denied to connect to this device.

5.Clients 2 and 3 and other wired clients with a MAC address unspecified in the Control table

58

are all allowed to connect to this device. But client 1 is denied to connect to this device.

6.Clients 1 and 2 are allowed to associate to the wireless LAN, but a wireless client with a

MAC address not specified in the Control table is denied to associate to the wireless LAN.

Client 3 is a wired client and so is not affected by Association control.

2.4.3.5 Miscellaneous Items

Remote Administrator Host/Port

In general, only Intranet user can browse the built-in web pages to perform administration task.

This feature enables you to perform administration task from remote host. If this feature is enabled, only the specified IP address can perform remote administration. If the specified IP address is 0.0.0.0, any host can connect to this product to perform administration task. You can use subnet mask bits "/nn" notation to specified a group of trusted IP addresses. For example, "10.1.2.0/24".

NOTE: When Remote Administration is enabled, the web server port will be shifted to 88. You can change web server port to other port, too.

Administrator Time-out

The time of no activity to logout automatically. Set it to zero to disable this feature.

Discard PING from WAN side

When this feature is enabled, any host on the WAN cannot ping this product.

SPI Mode

When this feature is enabled, the router will record the packet information pass through the router like IP address, port address, ACK, SEQ number and so on. And the router will check every incoming packet to detect if this packet is valid.

DoS Attack Detection

When this feature is enabled, the router will detect and log the DoS attack comes from the

59

Internet. Currently, the router can detect the following DoS attack: SYN Attack, WinNuke, Port

Scan, Ping of Death, Land Attack etc.

63

2.4.4.3 Dynamic DNS

To host your server on a changing IP address, you have to use dynamic domain name service

(DDNS).

So that anyone wishing to reach your host only needs to know the name of it. Dynamic DNS will map the name of your host to your current IP address, which changes each time you connect your Internet service provider.

Before you enable

Dynamic DNS

, you need to register an account on one of these Dynamic

DNS servers that we list in

provider

field.

To enable

Dynamic DNS

click the check box next to

Enable

in the

DDNS

field.

Next you can enter the appropriate information about your Dynamic DNS Server.

You have to define:

Provider

Host Name

Username/E-mail

Password/Key

You will get this information when you register an account on a Dynamic DNS server.

64

3.

QoS:

Quality of Service.

Local IP/Ports:

The IP and ports that LAN side PC used. The value 0 means don’t care.

Remote IP/Ports:

The IP and ports that Remote Server used. The value 0 means don’t care.

For example, if you want to guarantee the HTTP bandwidth, you could keep Local

IP/Port as 0/0, Remote IP/Port as 0/80.

65

2.4.4.5 SNMP

In brief, SNMP, the Simple Network Management Protocol, is a protocol designed to give a user the capability to remotely manage a computer network by polling and setting terminal values and monitoring network events.

Enable SNMP

You must check Local, Remote or both to enable SNMP function. If Local is checked, this device will response request from LAN. If Remote is checked, this device will response request from WAN.

Get Community

Setting the community of GetRequest your device will response.

Set Community

Setting the community of SetRequest your device will accept.

IP 1, IP 2, IP 3, IP 4

Input your SNMP Management PC’s IP here. User has to configure to where this device should send SNMP Trap message.

SNMP Version

Please select proper SNMP Version that your SNMP Management software supports.

WAN Access IP Address

If the user wants to limit to specific the IP address to access, please input in the item. The default 0.0.0.0 and means every IP of Internet can get some information of device with SNMP protocol.

Click on “Save” to store your setting or “Undo” to give up.

66

2.4.4.6 Routing

Routing Tables

allow you to determine which physical interface address to use for outgoing IP data grams. If you have more than one routers and subnets, you will need to enable routing table to allow packets to find proper routing path and allow different subnets to communicate with each other.

Routing Table settings are settings used to setup the functions of static.

Dynamic Routing

Routing Information Protocol (RIP) will exchange information about destinations for computing routes throughout the network. Please select RIPv2 only if you have different subnet in your network.

Otherwise, please select RIPv1 if you need this protocol.

Static Routing

: For static routing, you can specify up to 8 routing rules. You can enter the destination IP address, subnet mask, gateway, hop for each routing rule, and then enable or disable the rule by checking or unchecking the Enable checkbox.

Example:

67

Configuration on NAT Router

Destination SubnetMask Gateway Hop Enabled

192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.123.216 1

ˇ

192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.123.103 1

ˇ

So if, for example, the client3 wanted to send an IP data gram to 192.168.0.2, it would use the above table to determine that it had to go via 192.168.123.103 (a gateway),

And if it sends Packets to 192.168.1.11 will go via 192.168.123.216

Each rule can be enabled or disabled individually.

After

routing table

setting is configured, click the

save

button.
