Configuring commonly used routers
When installing GFI WebMonitor in Simple Proxy mode, ensure that your router is configured to
support port blocking or traffic forwarding. For most routers this is done by creating firewall
access/filtering rules to allow HTTP traffic originating from GFI WebMonitor Proxy machine and
block all outgoing HTTP traffic.
